The Visit is a pure passion project that has been crafted by super talented team. Unfortunately no film can be finished without a budget. We are here to ask you for your support and help to raise this modest budget that would cover some of our expenses. We already invested time and money to this project but there is still extra help needed for things like crew and cast transport , catering, equipment hire and costumes. Post-production and festival submissions.
The film is being shot on a beautiful rural farm in west cork. We have attached short video that capture the essence of the style and spirit of the film.
