Simon Filming ‘Granny’ and the Royal de Luxe for the short doc ‘One Giant Leap’

It has only been 4 years since she took her first steps in Limerick but it is still the most remembered weekend of the City of Culture 2014. It would be great to have the Royal de Luxe team back. Cheers again to Zeb Moore on giving his time back then for this short doc.

It is this category (2) that should interest to third level students which is for non- televised films  in the ethos of Radharc films of old and which can be of any  length from 5 minutes upwards.

The Radharc Awards are highly coveted by film schools and students around the country and they are encouraged to submit an entry for the forthcoming awards event. The closing date for entries is  the 1st October next .

Screen Training Ireland are delighted to partner with High Res in association with disguise to host the first ‘D3 Fundamental & Advanced Training Course’ in Ireland, which will take place in Dublin at the end of July.  The course will be led by Chris Simcock, an official D3 disguise trainer, who has tailored this course to suit the demands of the current film & television industry.

D3 is a state of the art media server. It is one of the first servers to have the capability to output 10 bit processing depth and is quickly becoming the primary media server platform for live and broadcast environments. The D3’s cutting edge technology can manage and synchronise a variety of different output sources, from LED screens, to projection systems, as well as tracking realtime data from systems like scenery motion control, making it a powerful collaborative tool in helping creative production teams realise their vision.

The course will run over 3 days from Tuesday 24th to Thursday the 26th of July 2018.
