Co-Op in Ireland

January 10, 2009 — Co-Op in Ireland

Film & Video major Brian Johanson spent his co-op on the set of Neil Jordan's latest film while it was shooting in Ireland. Neil Jordan, the director and producer of The Crying Game and Interview with a Vampire, recently completed production on Ondine starring Colin Farrell.

Brian told us that he worked with a crew of top film professionals "who had worked on everything from Lawrence of Arabia to the Harry Potter movies. I was the video operator and my responsibility was to record everything the camera sees so that the director and crew could get a sense of how each shot is working." Brian worked at ten different locations and fifty sets in Castletownbere and West Cork Island, shooting in cottages and fields in these small Irish villages.
