Screen Skills Ireland Launches Multi-Camera Directing Course in Association With IADT
19 Aug 2019 : News Desk
The Multi-Camera Directing for TV non-fiction course addresses skills gaps in multi-camera directing for live TV programming.
The Multi-Camera Directing for TV non-fiction course commenced on Monday 12 August 2019 in the IADT TV studio.

Award-winning Multi-Camera Director, Richard Valentine (Live 8Dancing With The Stars) designed the course with Screen Skills Ireland to address skills gaps in multi-camera directing for live TV programming. Each of the participants have professional industry experience in TV and are looking to step up into the role of Multi-Camera Director. This training programme provides participants with an opportunity to go through a high level industry designed programme with a highly experienced multi-camera director at the helm. 

Participants will undergo a week of intensive studio based training which involves workshops on camera, lighting, production design, vision mixing, and sound, as well as detailed briefings on preparing camera scripts, running orders and time charts, and scheduling rehearsals.

They will then put their skills into practice and work alongside a crew of skilled craftspeople, scripting and directing a magazine show and scripting and directing a live musical event. By the conclusion of this course, participants will have been trained in the key aspects of multi-camera directing, which will enable them to direct in a multi-camera studio environment.

Speaking about the programme, Larry Bass, CEO of Shinawil, and Chair of the Screen Skills Sub Committee said:

“This course will provide much-needed skills development for experienced TV personnel to step up to the new challenge of multi-camera directing. Participants have a fantastic opportunity to learn from a highly experienced director in order to gain the knowledge and skills they need to thrive in a multi-camera studio environment.”

Gareth Lee, Manager Screen Skills Ireland added:

“Screen Skills Ireland is delighted to run this course in association with IADT to respond to a key skills gap in the TV non-fiction sector. We are building capacity in the sector and supporting the quality of live programming by developing the skills of a new talent pool of multi-camera directors.”
