Film, TV & Photography

We provide a set design, fabrication and prop-making service film, TV and photography shoots. This includes fully furnished and dressed sets for drama and commercials; sets, staging, rostra and backdrops for live or recorded studio and location broadcast; and bespoke furniture, desks and props for sports, current affairs and news. We also provide dressed sets, backgrounds, or one-off props for commercial and corporate photography shoots.

Amongst our specialities are sports and news desks, and sets for cookery shows and children's TV. Our sets and featured props for RTÉ's Sattitude were utilised for five seasons, with re-designed elements and new set pieces commissioned during this time. We also designed the sets for Trish's City Kitchen for RTÉ, and O Cuisine for TG4. In addition to this, we provided the stage sets for the annual traditional music show Gradam Ceoil at Cork Opera House and UCH, and for Tommy Fleming at the INEC. Further commissions include the desks for TG4 Nuacht and Newstalk FM, and the set for the BGE Awards produced by Nemeton TV and aired live from Croke Park. 

More recently, our Senior Designer Don Rothwell was recruited as Production Designer on Oonagh Kearney’s ‘On The Hemline’, and as Art Director on Carmel Winters' latest feature film ‘Float Like A Butterfly’, released in 2019 (watch the trailer here). Setworks styled the Stop.Watch TV Body Brothers series for RTE Junior, and we are currently completing the design and fit-out of podcast sets for The Irish Examiner national newspaper. Over the past couple of years we have also designed and styled various room sets for the annual Smyths Toys catalogue, and their Baby Room catalogue.

We also have a stand-alone construction and prop-making service which appeals to other Designers, Art Directors, and Prop Buyers.

Clients include: RTE, TG4, Setanta Ireland, Newstalk, Samson Films, Smyths Toys, Stop.Watch.TV, The Irish Examiner
"Don's attention to detail is second to none and he has a fantastic ability to take any brief and come up with the goods. Working to tight deadlines and even tighter budgets has never been an issue. It's always a pleasure to work with Don and I look forward to working with him on future projects."
