Corman was invited to set up operations in Ireland by the Irish government, keen to develop filmmaking in the west of the country. He built studios in Connemara, County Galway. He received a start-up grant from Minister for Arts, Culture and the Gaeltacht Michael D. Higgins.
Around twenty films were made, using Irish crew and actors. They were mostly in exploitation genres such as action adventure, suspense thrillers, science fiction and horror
A documentary was later made about the studio called It Came from Connemara!.
