We are a full-service Film and Television Drama Production company, creating, producing and selling top-tier content for Irish and global audiences.



PRELUDE's Paul FitzSimons was delighted to be invited by Screen Producers Ireland to be part of the Ireland Connect delegation to Screen Forever, Australia annual Film and TV industry conference.

It was an amazing week of seminars, roundtables and meetings (and maybe a few parties) and chats with producers from every corner of Australia. Some proper collaborative chats were had and there's likely to be some Australian co-productions in Prelude's future.
Paul also enjoyed hanging out with his fellow Irish producers, Samson's Sam Atwell, Jac Kerrin from Rippleworld, Subotica's Aoife O’Sullivan, Cardel's Carla Mooney, Maggie Breathnach from Red Shoe, Shinawil's Mary Callery, Anna Mannion from TriMoon, and Shauna Keogh from The Empire Agency, as well as SPI's David Donoghue and honourary Irishman Simon Crowe. 

Huge thanks to Screen Producers Ireland, Screen Producers Australia and Screen Queensland, for making it happen.

Development Assistance


we are on the way to being a leading provider of film and television content for audiences around the world, working with industry leaders, and availing of current and emerging production and broadcasting methodologies. 

We work with leading and emerging film industry crew and creative personnel, across all specialties and including all ages, genders, abilities, races, cultures and orientations.

We will showcase Ireland as an attractive filming setting and location, for both Irish and international productions.


Collaborating with leading and emerging screenwriters from Ireland, UK and US, we devise, develop and advance new works in TV Drama and feature film.


We have relationships with agents at leading literary agencies in Ireland and the UK, who advise us of new and upcoming releases with adaptation potential. We negotiate option fees and terms with writers and agents.


We work with producers and production company development personnel to advance projects that have been optioned, acquired or commissioned. This will lighten the significant load involved in a film or TV drama’s development phase as well as add an experienced pair of eyes to the development team.

We also work with producers and creatives to advance development of projects, including submitting and co-ordinating funding applications. This includes story development, preparing required documents and information, development budget forecasting, checking eligibility requirements and application form guidance.  

Our other services include script editing, packaging, attending festivals and marketplaces, creating development schedule and budgets, and brokering relationships with directors.

All collaborations, partnerships and consultations are undertaken in complete confidence.

Please note that we do not accept or read unsolicited story ideas or scripts. But do reach out and say hello.
