The film was shot over 6 months on location in India and post produced in Clonfin.
“It was a journey for all of us, in total we travelled about four thousand miles throughout India and Goa, both during the monsoon and the summer heat. Making film is tough work, but we had a great team, both crew and cast and I am very grateful to all. Our Irish post production team are second to none and I am very proud of the job we have done,” explained Oliver Durkin, who has just returned from a month in Mexico on pre production of their next project.
“We are lucky to have several projects in the pipeline, including a film set in Clonfin based around horses.”
