RTÉ’s brand new four-part drama series ‘Amber’ will finish filming tomorrow (October 5th). The series will be edited by Tony Cranstoun (Death of a Superhero, When Harvey Met Bob) at Meatball Facilities in the Liberties between now and January 2012. The sound mix and the grade will be completed in The Factory in January and February 2012.
The 4x52 drama series, which is directed by IFTA winning Thaddeus O’Sullivan (Single-Handed, Into the Storm, Stella Days), was shot on location in suburban Dublin from late August. The drama stars Eva Birthistle (Walking the Dead, Glenroe) and David Murray (Zonad, Raw) as the parents of missing 14-year old girl ‘Amber’. Director of Photography was IFTA nominated Peter Robinson (West is West, Inside I’m Dancing) and it was filmed on Red.
‘Amber’ is co-written by Gary Duggan and Rob Cawley, who produces alongside Paul Duane (Barbaric Genius, Director: The Royal, Casualty) of Screenworks, the Dublin based production company behind the series. The series received funding from the BAI Sound and Vision Fund. Further details will be announced closer to its scheduled TX in Spring 2012.
