Pinewood Studios has launched a full service production company in Ireland.
 
Pinewood Productions Ireland Limited is a full service production company based in the Irish Republic focusing on physical production administration, Section 481 application and packaging.

Services will range from pre-production budgeting and location scouting, through facilities rentals and talent and crew sourcing for international clients shooting film and high end TV drama projects.

Pinewood is planning to hire a head of production to service the company.
 
Pinewood said that the move had been made in part in response to improvements in Irish tax breaks.

From 1 January 2015, Ireland's tax incentive Section 481 (Taxes Consolidation Act 1997) for film and television has been enhanced, creating a new payable tax credit programme worth up to 32% of eligible Irish expenditure, based on the cost of all cast & crew working in Ireland, regardless of nationality.
 
The incentive applies to feature film, TV drama (singles or series), animation (excluding computer games), & creative documentary.

Projects must either pass a cultural test or qualify as an official co-production under one of Irelands Bilateral Co-Production Treaties or the European Convention on Cinematographic Co-Production.
 
Pinewood Studios Group commercial director Nick Smith said: ‘Pinewood Productions Ireland will expand Pinewood’s global offering and enhance the services we can offer our International clients.
 
Pinewood Stuios has expanded overseas with studios in Toronto, Canada; Atlanta, Georgia USA; Iskandar, Malaysia and the Dominican Republic and in the UK.

The company recently opened Pinewood Studio Wales, just outside Cardiff.

Recent film and TV productions that have used the studios’ facilities include: Spectre (Eon), Avengers: Age of Ultron (Marvel Entertainment) Gravity (Warner Bros); Star Wars: The Force Awakens (Lucasfilm); Guardians of the Galaxy (Marvel Entertainment); Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (Paramount Pictures); Maleficent (Walt Disney Studios).
