Piranha Bar Launch Commercial Film Initiative Brief Ideas
09 Feb 2017 : Laura Brennan
Frame from the OFFSET Main titles 2016 by Piranha Bar
Do you have a great idea that never quite made it? Well, Piranha Bar are pleased to launch Brief Ideas, an initiative that wants to make those ideas happen.

Brief Ideas with the support of Piranha Bar’s production studio and Director James Doherty 'Breathe', seeks to provide writing talents with the tools and collaborative ‘know how’ to create a powerful commercial film for a worthwhile cause.

The project seeks to create innovative and cinematic commercial pieces, with a focus on non-traditional structures and experimental storytelling techniques. Appropriate scripts will be brought to life using the multi-disciplinary talents of hybrid production company Piranha Bar. 

Speaking about the project to IFTN, Piranha Bar Director James Doherty said: “We have the tools, and team, to make a great film at our disposal, so it feels good to offer the opportunity up for a writer to get their work made to a high production standard. Especially when it involves a message that is important and needs to be heard.”

The films should be a positive message, for charities, non-profits or social messages; existing or previous clients. Projects that innovate and stand out and submissions are open so applicants can submit scripts, outlines, mood boards, however best their ideas are articulated.

Prospective scripts and enquiries can be directed to briefideas@piranhabar.ie and there are further details available at www.briefideas.tv

Closing date for scripts will be the 15th March 2017.
