‘Wild Decembers’ Completes Post at ScreenScene
16 Oct 2009 :
Wild Decembers
Post production of ninety minute drama ‘Wild Decembers’ at Screen Scene Post Production has now finished. The drama, produced for RTÉ by Touchpaper Television and Irish co-producer Octagon Films is directed by Anthony Byrne (How About You) and produced by Clare Alan (A Harlot’s Progress).

‘Wild Decembers’ is adapted by Edna O’Brien from her novel of the same name and stars Lara Belmont (Echoes), Owen McDonnell (Conspirancy of Silence) and Matt Ryan. (Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day) The drama also features Irish talents such as IFTA winning actor Sean McGinley (Man About Dog), Hugh O’Connor (A Film With Me In It), Jane Brennan (Intermission) and Pauline Cadell (Northanger Abbey).

The project was shot in Bray, Co. Wicklow and tells the tale of Michael Bugler who arrives to his uncle’s dilapidated mountainside farm which he has inherited only to re-ignite a centuries-old feud over land with neighbour Joseph Brennan and which is not helped by Michael’s love for Joseph’s sister Breege.

RTÉ TV Drama’s commissioning editor, Jane Gogan says of the film: “Edna O’Brien’s television adaptation of her own novel is a powerful piece of work that brings something quite exceptional to Irish drama. The impressive calibre of cast and crew makes this an exciting proposition for our viewers. At the heart of great drama is a great writer and RTÉ is lucky to have Edna O’Brien and Conor McPherson writing new drama.”

‘Wild Decembers’ executive producer is Rob Pursey (Single Handed) with John Conroy (A Shine of Rainbows) as the project’s director of photography. The drama’s editor is Isobel Stephenson (Adam & Paul) with Fiachra O’Hanlon (Not Evil Just Wronf) on sound.
