From Burton Wood to Hollywood!

Among other things, Gerry Murphy (left on the film set on day one
of the shoot), is also executive producer of the feature film, Ulysses,
which started shooting last Sunday (22nd September 2002) in Dublin.
"I have been involved with Sean Walsh, the film's director
and screen play writer since 1993 when he first told me about his
plan to make a feature film based on James Joyce's epic novel Ulysses.
For the last two years I have worked with Sean to make his passion
a reality and it was indeed a great day last Sunday when we began
shooting the film in Dublin", Gerry told the Vale Star.
Stars in the film include Stephen Rea,
Angeline Ball, Hugh O'Conor and Patrick Bergin. A crew of over 40
people are involved in the film shoot. The shoot will take five
weeks and then the film will go into its post production phase which
will take up to a year to complete.
Ulysses, by James Joyce, is the story of one day in the life of
a city. The day is 16th June 1904 and the city is Dublin. But Joyce's
Ulysses is much more than that; it is the gateway into the consciousness
of the three lead characters in the novel. The screen play which
has taken nine years to complete has been heralded as an inspired
piece of work by leading Joycean scholar, Senator David Norris.
