'Ulysses' Set To Film for Five Weeks
18 Sep 2002 :
The feature film adaptation of 'Ulysses' is to begin filming on Sunday, 22 September, in Dublin. The film, which has been in development since 1993, is the labour of love of the writer/director/producer, Sean Walsh, director of Millbrook Studios in Rathfarnham. The project is being co-produced by Stalheim Ltd and Hubbard's production arm What's The Story in UK, through S481 in Ireland and sale and leaseback in the UK.

Donal Ruane, the production manager, has been working with Walsh for the last 18 months, and is delighted to report that the crew working on the project is first class, especially considering that Ella Enchanted, this year's largest production in Ireland, and 'Intermission' the Company of Wolves/Parallel production starring Colin Farrell and Colm Meaney, are both shooting at the same time.

'Ulysses' will be shooting for five, 6 day weeks (finishing 27 October), in and around Dublin (Dublin Castle, Shaw's birthplace in Portobello, Print Museum in Beggars' Bush, the Strand in Dollymount and Hannay Studios in Cabra). VFG are the sole providers of camera, grip and lighting equipment on the shoot, which will be on Hi-Definition.

Stephen Rea is cast as Leopold Bloom, Angeline Ball as Molly Bloom, and Hugh O'Connor as Stephen Dedalus. These leads committed to the project when it was originally to film last year, and have been able to organise their schedules for the shoot dates this autumn.

Writer/Producer/Director: Sean Walsh
