Irish feature ‘Made In Belfast’ Enters Pre-Production
16 May 2012 : By Steve Cummins
Ciaran McMenamin
Ciaran McMenamin (One Hundred Mornings), Owen McDonnell (Single-handed) and Stuart Graham (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) are among a strong Northern Irish cast set to star in writer/director Paul Kennedy’s debut feature film, ‘Made In Belfast.’

Pre-production is currently underway on the micro-budget feature, which is the first project to be produced by Belfast-based independent film company KGB Screen.

Shooting on the film will begin in various locations around Belfast city centre on July 18 and will last for approximately 12-14 days. Further filming will be carried out in Paris, where exterior shots will be filmed.

Alongside McMenamin, McDonnell and Graham, the 85-minute drama/ rom-com will also star Bronagh Waugh (Hollyoaks), Ian Beattie (Game of Thrones) and Lalor Roddy (Grabbers).

’Made in Belfast’ tells the story of Jack Kelly (McMenamin), a successful novelist living a reclusive life in Paris, who returns to his hometown of Belfast to visit his father’s deathbed. While home, he decides to put right some wrongs he made when he was younger, including abandoning his younger brother, jilting his ex-fiancée at the altar, and trying to reconcile a married couple who inadvertently separated due to things Jack had written in his debut novel.

Writer/director Paul Kennedy was recently shortlisted for the prestigious Stewart Parker Trust Award for his stage play ‘Guidelines For A Long and Happy Life,’ though is better known as an actor, having appeared in ‘Cherrybomb,’ ‘Saving the Titanic’ and ‘Five Minutes of Heaven.’

Ahead of production Kennedy said: “I’m delighted to have been given the opportunity to make this film and I’m even more thrilled to have been able to attach a seriously talented bunch of people to work on it in front of and behind the cameras.”

‘Made In Belfast’ will be shot in digital HD format by director of photography Damien Elliot (Cherrybomb, Nine Dead Gay Guys).

Kennedy, Graham and Mark Butler will produce for new independent film company KGB Screen.

All post-production will be handled by Ka-Boom in Belfast, with Brian Philip Davis (Pumpgirl) handling the picture edit.

The feature is part-funded by Northern Ireland Screen and the UK Film Council’s Lottery funding. It also hopes to raise additional financing through a FundIt campaign.

KGB productions are also seeking production interns to work on the ‘Made In Belfast’ shoot this summer. Full details are available through KGB Screen - www.kgbscreen.com.
