A new trailer has been released for Nadj Foley’s new Irish independent feature film Blue Dawn, which is currently in post-production.
Blue Dawn is an independent drama that tells the story of a young man, Aaron (Fiach Kunz), returning home to rural Ireland after serving time in the British Army out in the Middle-East. Upon his return, Aaron begins to discover the effects that going to war has had on himself and on those he left behind.
The film is produced by Pen To Paper Productions/Blackroad Studios, written and directed by Nadj Foley and stars Fiach Kunz (Game of Thrones, LIFT), Degnán Geraghty (The Man Who Invented Christmas, Uisce Beatha), Kyle Hixon, Rosemary Keogh, and Jordan Coombes (Vikings, Lead Us Not), shot by director of photography Barry Fahy, features original songs by musician Dane Beattie and the film score is composed by Éanán Patterson (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, The Woman In Black, Gotham).
Blue Dawn originally went into pre-production in 2014 and was shot on a budget of €5,000, which was largely self-funded with some of the funds raised through a crowd funding campaign. Filming initially began in September 2014 on location around Co. Wicklow and was shot irregularly over the course of a year. After some delays in post-production, producers Fiach Kunz and Nadj Foley are now pleased to confirm that the film will be completed and ready for festival submission by this coming August.
