For several weeks during the summer of 1997 a local farmers field in Moate County Meath was transformed into a turn of the 20th century excavation site, for an ancient artifact discovered there. Filmed in Ireland the short film comedy Chrono-perambulator was written & directed by Damien O'Donnell. Although its duration is just 11 minutes, it features a high calibre cast with Charles Dance, Scottish actor Bill Paterson, Mal Whyte & a host of local Irish actors including Guy Carleton, Eamonn Hunt & Jer O'Leary.
The Chrono-perambulator movie storyline revolves around an eccentric Professor Teddy Knox played by Bill Paterson, and his attempts to travel back in time to discover the origin of artifacts found at a neolithic excavation site. Charles Dance plays the character of James "Dougie" Douglas - a Sherlock Holmes type who attempts to pour reason on some of Professor Knox's wilder outbursts. The vintage truck - below right, was used to transport the Time Machine from the professor's workshop to the excavation location.
