Robert Jones (The Hooligan Factory), Wayne Marc Godfrey (The Anomaly [+see also:

A Patch of Fog will shoot entirely in Northern Ireland with funding from the UK’s The Fyzz Facility, the Northern Ireland Screen Fund supported by Invest NI and part funded by the European Regional Development Fund, and the British Film Institute.
