Film Locations
HI, my name is Phil and I'm here to pick the brains of ye mountain folk. Iím a film student and in two weeks time I shall be making a film set in a forest, the problem is I need three rather specific locations; I have found one deep in Djouce woods but am still in need of the other two. Basically what I'm looking for is 1) a forest clearing filled with wild flowers, the more vivid the better. I know itís still a bit early in the year for that but the film doesnít roll until the 11th of April so I'm hoping the extra couple of weeks will make the difference. 2) A dirt road through the forest, this one sounds easy but I have a rather specific type in mind. The road should be flat black earth with an unkempt grass verge lined with densely packed coniferous trees (tall). The road should be wide enough to take a truck and still have plenty of room on either side for people to stand. I have found loads of dirt roads that would be fine for a car or a small tractor but not something as big as a lorry.

Ideally for the sake of time and cost it would be great to find these locations in Wicklow but I will take all and any suggestions (our base is in Dun Laoghaire).

If you can help I would be very very grateful.You can leave me a message here or at mister.pip@hotmail.co.uk

Phil

I did kayak to the island in 2014. There is a slipway facing the mainland. Lot's of ruined houses. Walking is decent as the island is flat but in places ground is uneven and overgrown, there are o...
