STI Multi-camera Drama Directors Training Course with RTÉ
01 Aug 2018 :
RTÉ' 'Fair City'
Screen Training Ireland to partner with RTÉ on a Multi-camera Drama Directors Training Course which will will commence in December 2018 and run for 12 days.

The training course will provide an opportunity for four multi-camera Drama Directors to go through a structured training programme preparing them to direct episodes on RTÉs, ongoing drama, Fair City.

Directors work to the Executive Producer and the Series Producer and will be a key part of the team leading cast and crews through the production process.  Because of the nature of ongoing drama there is a rigorous approach to story, script, scheduling and a formulated method of production.  Directors are asked to bring original thinking to the production and be part of the ever evolving nature of serial television drama production.

Successful candidates must have previous professional experience directing performance in theatre, video, TV or film.  The emphasis of the course is to train directors with drama, comedy and performance experience to direct in a multi-camera studio environment.  We will look for candidates who have a creative imagination and a rigorous work ethic.

A professional working knowledge of directing actors for performance and a high appreciation and knowledge of soaps and serial drama will be expected as well as a proven ability to interpret a script and lead a crew.

Successful candidates will undergo a 12 day classroom, studio, location and editing training programme followed by a 5 week shadow directing period and, if successful, a 5 week mentored directing period in preparation to become a regular director on RTÉ’s 200 episode a year soap.

The training course will commence in December 2018 and run for 12 days. Successful applicants must be available to attend the complete course.  They must also be available to attend the shadowing and mentored cycles, which may take place up to the end of 2019 preparing the candidate to take up the role of director.

If you are interested in applying for this exciting opportunity please apply in strictest confidence by submitting a cover letter, your Curriculum Vitae outlining your suitability for the role and a vimeo link to your showreel. The showreel should include examples of previous drama directing work. (Please attach all as one document when submitting your online application.)
