Behind the scenes stills from feature film 'The Dig'. Filmed on a bog, on a hill, in November, in the bitter cold and biting wind. A challenging shoot that left zero time for errors of any description. Shot in 5k RAW with the Inspire 2, the footage matched up perfectly with the Arri Alexa Mini that was used as the A-Cam throughout the rest of the film.

At Wolfhound Media we’ve never been very good at shouting about our achievements. Our New Year’s resolution is to put an end to that.
Don’t worry we aren’t going to spam you every time we get a new client, buy a new piece of kit or double park without getting a ticket.
2017 was a great year for the company. Too good not to be proud of and not to talk about. We produced content for the fashion industry, for tourism, business and food. We worked with interior designers, universities, engineers, rugby clubs, textile manufacturers and with an opera singer on her new album.
We travelled across all of Northern Ireland, the Republic, Scotland and England to produce content for local, national and international clients.
Alasdair’s aerial photography has continued to amaze and delight our clients. In 2017 he shot for corporate projects, broadcast television productions and a feature film.
In 2017, Wolfhound Media returned to the roots of its foundation three and a half years ago: drama.
We produced two funded short films and worked across another two. All four films will be released in 2018.
Stuart’s debut feature film ‘The Dig’ is also now in post-production. Produced by Brian J Falconer and Out of Orbit Productions, in association with Wolfhound Media, the film stars Moe Dunford, Lorcan Cranitch and Emily Taaffe. It is directed by Ryan and Andy Tohill. The film’s premiere will also be in 2018. We will be sharing more about this throughout the year.
As good as 2017 was, we expect 2018 to be even better. Not just because of premieres and showcases, but because of all the hard work ahead of us.
In this industry you are only ever as good as your last job and that is the mantra we live by. It’s going to be an exciting 2018. Stay tuned. This will be the year we keep our resolution.
The incredible Cast and Crew of 'The Dig'. We can't thank them enough for all their hard work and dedication through rain, snow and bog. Dig 2 will be set in the south of France! Promise!

In late December, Wolfhound was proud to present a selection of films co-produced with the Causeway Coast and Glens Council to a packed private cinema in Bushmills.
The brief for this series was quite simple - showcase the wonderful people, produce and picturesque sights of the Causeway Coast. Portstewart’s own Sarah Travers went on this journey with us and time after time, hair net after hair net, made everything a little easier.
We went lobster potting, beer sampling, whiskey sipping, bread baking, salmon smoking, quail egg collecting, pesto pounding and much more.
A real joy to behold was getting the drone in the air. The beauty of the Causeway Coast and Glens is hard to describe. It has to be seen to be believed.
Working with these wonderful businesses was an inspiration for us at Wolfhound. Their skill, dedication to quality and unwavering positive attitude was a joy to behold and something we endeavour to put into everything we produce.
‘The North Coast has always felt like a second home to me but seeing it in this whole new light was a real pleasure. The energy and enthusiasm was contagious and the food, drink and people were great too.’

This is a short promotional film we made for Malone Golf Club. The stunning location combined with the use of our DJI Inspire X5 RAW aerial camera, really helps show off Malone Golf Club for what it is - one of the most beautiful parkland courses in Ireland.
