WATCH: The Nightflyers trailer that attracts rave reviews across the globe
The Nightflyers trailer is attracting rave reviews across the globe. Troy Studios brings glory to Limerick City with their most anticipated project.
A Netflix original Nightflyers was shot in the heart of Castletroy, Limerick. The series is a production of NBC Universal and Universal Cable Productions and is adapted from the 1987 George RR Martin novella of the same name.
The story follows eight maverick scientists joined by a powerful telepath embark on a journey on board The Nighflyer to the edge of the Solar System and their quest to make contact with alien life.
An ambitious journey that started four years ago is a reality, the series shows that Limerick could be home to world-class studio production facilities and attract some of the world’s best film and TV makers to the Limerick city region to film.
Following the Nightflyers trailer release, a post by Troy Studios on their Facebook page reflects the anticipation and excitement of all in Limerick. The series boasts of a 91% Irish crew with an average of 320 employees on site each day.
The €53m budget production brings into limelight Ireland’s Eoin Mackin, as Karl D’Branin and Brian F O’Byrne as Auggie.
Limerick City and County Council bought the old Dell factory after realising its potential following the successful staging of many events during the National City of Culture 2014 celebrations and discussions begun about converting it into studios. The abandoned site was once a symbol of Limerick’s decline following the decision of the computer giant to relocate to Poland in 2009. This new initiative represents a brand new chapter for the city of Limerick, particularly in the creative arts area.
Innovate Limerick, Limerick City and County Council’s Innovation arm worked to transform the facility which has resulted in the doubling of Ireland’s entire movie making capacity.
Troy Studios have taken a 20-year lease. The Troy Studios Nightflyers production has already resulted in the creation of over 400 jobs and it is estimated that the studio could generate additional annual revenues of €70 million for the mid-west economy, but also further spin-out benefits across the region to support the large crew involved.
According to the Troy studios’ Facebook page: Episodes 1-5 will have their broadcast debut Sunday, December 2 through Thursday, December 6 across all SYFY broadcast and digital platforms.”
