Screen Training Ireland is seeking applications from female directors interested in a shadow directing opportunity on upcoming film production The Last Right.

Due to the nature of production the opportunity will have a fluid form but the overall objective will be to provide participants with exposure and experience on a feature film set, and ultimately to help increase the number of future productions directed by female talent.

This is not a training scheme and the shadowing opportunity is not open to entry-level talent. The focus is on career advancement. There is a modest stipend provided and the duration of the shoot is 5 weeks, starting in early November, with a potential extra week or two either side to also get some pre/post experience.

Essential requirements:

• Candidates must be female, and have directed at least one short film that has had an award-qualifying festival premiere, or TV broadcast

• Candidates must have a director, assistant director, or DOP credit on at least two short films, and/or one feature film

• Candidates must able to provide a link to an up to date showreel and provide a current director CV

• Candidates are expected to be self-starters, with a positive attitude, who have on-set experience and who recognise this role is to assist and shadow the director

• Candidates must have a current, clean driving licence and their own car

To apply please email grainne.bennett@screentrainingireland.ie by 30th of September. Please supply a current CV, a link to a show reel, and a short description of why this shadow directing opportunity might be beneficial in advancing your directing career. Candidates who do not meet the essential requirements will not be considered.

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.
