Writers and Directors Seminar

FÁS Screen Training Ireland is organising a half-day seminar on the 11th of July, in Galway during the Film Fleadh, on the collaboration between Directors and Writers.

The Writer/Director Collaboration is one of the most vital aspects of filmmaking. The Writer envisions and creates a Story. The Director brings the Story to life on the screen. In this seminar we will explore how Writers and Directors can work together more effectively and efficiently and how they can employ the talents and imagination of Actors in the Story and Character development process.

The tutor for the course is Mark Travis, a director of television shows like The Facts of Life, Family Ties, Capitol and the Emmy Award-winning PBS dramatic special, Blind Tom: The Thomas Bethune Story.

The seminar costs €40.00, and apply via the website by June 30. Email Grainne Bennett at grainne.bennett[at]fas[dot]ie with any queries.
