'MILO' Shoot Begins in Dublin, Berend & Roel Boorsma Directing
19 May 2011 :
Director Berend Boorsma with actor Lorcan Bonner
Cameras have started to roll on the set of ‘Milo’ an Irish-Dutch coming of age film starring Stuart Graham (Hunger), Jer O'Leary (Savage), Laura Vasiliu (4 Months, 3 weeks, 2 days) Charlotte Bradley (About Adam); Dolf de Vries (Black Book) and newcomer, Lorcan Bonner in the title role. The film is directed by brothers Berend and Roel Boorsma, who have also written the script together with Heather Imani.

’MILO’ is the debut feature film of Berend and Roel Boorsma who previously worked together on short film ‘Brat’ as well as ad campaigns for Coca-Cola and Heineken. Martina Niland and David Collins (Once, Snap) are producing for Samson Films with San Fu Maltha (Black Book) for Fu Works in Holland.

The film centres on Milo, an isolated 10-year-old boy with ‘sensitive skin’ who lives a life rigidly controlled by his father. Sparked by his first friendship, he runs away from home to attend the school camping trip – but never arrives. He falls into the hands of an ageing criminal couple, with whom he enjoys pure freedom from constraint – until he learns the shocking truth about his skin condition.

’MILO’ will shoot in Dublin and Wicklow for the next five weeks. It is supported by The Irish Film Board, The Netherlands Film Fund, The Matching Fund, the Irish Tax incentive (Section 481) and the Belgian Tax Shelter. ‘MILO’ received €400,000 from the Irish Film Board in its March 2010 round of funding.

The film’s Irish crew members include production manager, Patrick O’Donoghue (line producer, A Film With Me In It); casting director, Louise Kiely (32A); art director, Tamara Conboy (Sensation); costume designer, Judith Williams (Wild Decembers) with Robert Flanagan (The Runway) on sound. ‘MILO’s production designer is Floris Vos (Valentin) and director of photography is Frank Van Den Eeden (Swooni). The film’s post production will take place in Holland and Belgium.

Benelux Film Distributors will release the film in Dutch Cinemas in February 2012 with an Irish distributor and sales agent for the film TBC.
