Windmill Lane are currently posting two feature projects for Parallel Films. The TV movies, ‘The Other Side’ and ‘Roadkill’, being made for British Sci-fi channel Syfy, both filmed in Ireland during summer 2010 and are currently in the hands of Windmill’s expert VFX team.
With Gráinne Gavigan (The Clinic) editing the feature at Windmill, ‘The Other Side’ is directed by BAFTA nominee, Billy O’Brien (The Tale of the Rat that Wrote) and stars Joe Flanigan (The Other Sister) and John Rhys-Davies (Raiders of the Lost Ark).
Written by Douglas G. Davis (Carny), the feature tells the story of a groundbreaking device designed to glimpse alternate universes. But when the machine malfunctions on its first demonstration and transports a group of observers into a nightmarish new dimension of bizarre alien terrors, the travellers must use ingenuity and courage to survive. But even if they stay alive, without a working transport, the group may never make it home.
’The Other Side’ is produced by Adrian Sturges (The Disappearance of Alice Creed) and the director of photography is Peter Robertson (Disco Pig) who shot on locations in Dublin and Wicklow. The support cast includes Catherine Walker (Leap Year), Dagmar Doring (Georgian Underworld), Chris Newman (Song for a Raggy Boy), Robert Soohan (David Copperfield), Sam O’Mahony (Casualty) and Yare Jegbefune (Fair City).[...]
