Irish feature film ‘Storage’ has entered pre-production ahead of its December shoot in Cork.
The camera team behind this year’s award-winning feature ‘Pilgrim Hill’ will film ‘Storage’ in various locations around Cork city over 20 days.
Described as a “psychological drama that explores the nature of regret”, ‘Storage’ will also be one of the first feature films to use the new facilities in Studio 5108 in Monahan Road in Cork.
Owner of this studio, Rupert MacCarthy-Morrogh, has written the script for ‘Storage’ with Cork actor James Browne. MacCarthy-Morrogh will also direct ‘Storage’, with Fergus Long (Pilgrim Hill) of General Cinematic Film & TV producing.
Ian D Murphy (Pilgrim Hill) is the director of photography on board, and will shoot the feature on the Red One MX camera.
The production team plan to shoot only at night, using locations such as City Hall in Cork, for a neo-classical theme.
Director MacCarthy-Morrogh said: “In the climate of a new awareness of men's mental health issues, ‘Storage’ attempts to scrutinise some of the causes and consequences of mental illness.”
The production team is currently seeking funding on crowd funding website Fund It. They have already raised a quarter of their budget, and producer Long tells IFTN he is “pretty confident” they will reach their €12,000 goal.
Other Irish crew attached to the project includes makeup artist Gill Brennan, who recently wrapped filming on beActive’s ‘Collider’ feature. ‘Storage’ is supported by the Cork Screen Commission and Cork City Council Arts Office.
