Closer to the start of production, requirements for extras can be advertised on our social media platforms or sourced through leading movie extra service providers.

Development & Pre-production

Movie Development & Pre-production

Creativity is a part of the Irish DNA. We have a rich storytelling culture inspired by our Celtic heritage.

Script development is just one aspect of the development process. This work must be carried out in tandem with developing the strategy to move the project into production.

Finance plans, budgets, production schedules and sales / distribution strategies are all essential elements which must run in conjunction with the script development process. As the project moves from development to pre-production, the focus moves to financial closing and locking down all of the required resources for filming including locations, studio facilities, cast, crew and post production facilities.

Movie Production Financing

Finance & Funding

Finance plans and budgets must be consistent with the underlying script. Breaking down the script is the first essential step to compiling a comprehensive global budget.

The breakdown process will identify production elements such as cast, extras, props and the required number of days to shoot the film. This information forms the basis for the preparation of the global budget.

When the budget has been drafted, a finance plan can be prepared to outline the proposed sources of finance for the production. The finance plan and budget will need to be continually updated for any script revisions until the script is locked
