In Ireland, gutted city and towncentres have been hoovered up by commercial interests, franchises, and flayed by skyrocketing rents. We have also systematically cleared people from our urban cores, housing them instead in outer suburbia, dependent on a car.

                 An alarming situation that was a concern pre-pandemic                     has been laid bare because of it.

         Our latest documentary for RTÉ ONE hosted by architect             Róisín Murphy, is available on the RTÉ Player


A Brief Introduction

Established in 2000, Red Pepper Productions is an independent production company based in Dublin with a reputation for excellence in both short and long form.

Between them, Laura and Martin have a wealth of experience in commercial, television and corporate production.

What We Do

Having produced over 80 commercials and sponsorship stings with various advertising agencies and for clients directly, we offer experience and exceptional value to all our commercial clients

Brands include Electric Ireland, Boyle Sports, McDonald's, Denny, Dove, SuperValu, Aviva Insurance, TV License, RTÉ Guide, Kellogg’s, Persil, Sure, Cow & Gate, Buitoni, UNICEF Ireland, National Museum of IrelandNoyeks Newmans, Sligo Tourism, Ford Ireland, Osteoporosis Society of Ireland and Barretstown.

       We also do engaging (and award-winning!) TV: entertainment with a twist, like wildlife series Fota: Into the Wild (VMTV), our fashion series Gléasta chun Féasta (TG4), couchsurfing with Ó Tholg go Tolg (TG4, 3 series) and all-round, horsey madness with Hector’s Only Fools Buy Horses (RTÉ)

                                    But we also make thought-provoking documentaries and factual series,                                           because telling compelling stories is kind of our thing...  

           Cumhacht An Nádúir (nature's response to the pandemic, TG4), Born Addicted (mothers and babies on                          methadone, RTÉ ONE), Tar Abhaile (reconnecting descendants with their Irish roots and family, TG4)                                         Behind the Crime (the consequences of having a loved-one involved in crime, TV3)                                How the Irish Have Sex and Back to School (both social history series for TV3) 

          Our versatility has seen Red Pepper Productions being nominated for IFTA's in three different categories: Best                             Entertainment Series (Only Fools Buy Horses), Best Documentary Series (How the Irish Have Sex) and                         Young Peoples (Ó Tholg go Tolg) 

               Ó Tholg go Tolg was also nominated 3 years in a row at the Celtic Media Awards, winning the famous                               Torc for the second series, presented by Bláthnaid Treacy.   

Last but not least, Red Pepper also produce corporate videos but, again, we always aim to add a story to them as that is what we think people connect with most.  One of our videos was distributed to nearly every school in Ireland (IOS), while another (World Rugby) went global, after being translated into six languages, including Russian and Mandarin. 

                   Clients include: Merchant's Quay Ireland, the Broadcasting Commission of Ireland (BAI),                                      Acorn Age-friendly Tablet, Irish Osteoporosis Society (IOS), Alzheimer Society of Ireland,                          UNICEF Ireland, Fyffes, World Rugby and the Louis Fitzgerald Group.
