DUBLIN, IRELAND — Two award-winning production companies announced today their unification under one brand, Motherland. Motherland and sister company, Event Junkies, have joined forces and pulled in leading industry talent to create one of Ireland’s most progressive production companies for the production, post-production, and delivery of film, commercials, online content, and music videos.
Under its new brand, Motherland welcomes Margaret Levingstone and Anthony McCaffery to the team as Head of Production and Head of Post-Production, respectively.
Levingstone joins from Rothco, part of Accenture Song, where she was Head of Production for eight years. Bringing a wealth of experience and vital agency know-how, she will be overseeing every aspect of production across the many platforms that Motherland works on.
“I’m excited at the opportunity. When I met the guys I knew they were different. Craft, creativity, and culture are at the core of everything Motherland does; coupled with an ambitious and disruptive vision for the future of production,” Levingstone said.
With over 20 years of experience, working with some of the top post houses in the world, including The Mill, RayGun, Untold Studios, and Brown Bag to name a few, Anthony McCaffery will lead up the post-production team, managing and evolving the entire post-production arm of Motherland.
CEO Ross Killeen commented, “We are a hybrid production company. We’re talent-driven and have always had craft at the heart of everything we do. Our industry has evolved so much in the past few years so we wanted to embrace this and build a single entity that is as agile as it is creative. To fully embrace this evolution we decided to refresh our brand as it really felt like we were bringing something new to the market.”
Motherland has recently produced the IFTA (Irish Film & Television Academy) nominated feature documentary, Love Yourself Today, which screened in theatres across the UK and Ireland last year. They also represent a plethora of international directing talent, such as recent signing Rachel Carey (‘Deadly Cuts’, The highest grossing Irish film of 2021), Kathryn Ferguson (‘Nothing Compares’, which premiered at Sundance festival in January), commercial directors Finn Keenan (Just Eat, Discord and Nike) and POB (Sky, Allianz, and Jameson) along with emerging talents like Sam McGrath, Hugh Mulhern, Ellius Grace, and Tara O’Callaghan.
