Bothy is now in Post Production

It has been a busy year so far.

Director of Atom Films, Alex Fegan, has been producing a short film called ‘Bothy’, on set in Donegal.

‘Bothy’ is a post Apocalyptic tale. We don’t want to reveal too much just yet.

‘Bothy’ is now in post production and is funded by RTE and FilmBase.




Inspiring shoot for the FAI



On the 9th December 2012, we wrapped a wonderful shoot for the FAI. We filmed seven events over two weeks, each one more inspiring than the next. Great to see the super work being done for so many communities in Ireland by our football association. Now for the tough part: We have to edit it down to three minutes.

The Quinn School of Business – UCD

Film celebrating the 10th birthday of the Quinn Business School, UCD. This played on the 5th December 2012 to packed audience in the Quinn School itself. We were delighted to work closely and under the direction of our friends and colleagues at Web, Video, Design to put this film together. We were also delighted to get to talk to and interview some of Ireland’s most influential people about the future of education in Ireland.


Our film for the Temptster App

This is a promotional film to explain the concept of Temptster to merchants. It is a fast paced mixture of live action and animation, which is perfect to get to the crux of how something works. It was filmed in Dublin, in November 2012.

We are going to be making more films for Temptster, for their customers and their website, upon the launch of the Temptster App in January 2013.



More Lorna Byrne Films



Lorna Byrne is an international bestseller author. Her debut book Angels in My Hair has been translated into twenty-six languages and published in fifty countries. Her third book A Message of Hope from the Angels is a Sunday Times No1 bestseller. She picked Atom Films to tell her story and so far we have made five films for her. An amazing and inspiring lady!


“We are extremely pleased with the videos created by Atom Films for the American launch of Lorna Byrne’s Sunday Times number 1 bestseller A Message of Hope from the Angels.

Alex and his team  are a joy to work with, very responsive to the brief, thoroughly professional and highly creative. They did a brilliant job within a very tight budget. We would unhesitatingly recommend them and look forward to working with them again”.
