O’Rourke, Flynn & Donovan Re-Elected to SPI Board
31 May 2011 :
Screen Producers Ireland (SPI) has announced Gerard O’Rourke of Monster Animation, James Flynn of Metropolitan Films and Paul Donovan of Grand Pictures have been re-elected to the board of the representative body.

Decided at its AGM last week, all three producers have been members of the SPI board for the past three years and required re-election at this year’s AGM. A representative from SPI said in addition naming its board for 2011/2012, a wide range of issues were discussed with an emphasis on “how to enhance production levels in order to maintain and hopefully increase the number of jobs in the audiovisual industry. This is of particular concern at the moment given the present economic climate.”

Guest speaker at the AGM was chairman of the Irish Film Board James Morris, who spoke about the strategy of the IFB for future growth in the context of the upcoming publication of the report by The Audiovisual Strategic Review Group, by the Minister for Arts, Heritage and Gaeltacht.

Other members that make up the Screen Producers Ireland board are Maire Ní Thuathail (Eo Teilifis), David Collins (Samson Films), Martha O’Neill (Wildfire), Liam Lavelle (Agtel/I.P.), Suzanne McAuley (Octagon), David Malone (Coco) and Orla McGowan (Vision Independent). The board is independently chaired by Gaby Smyth of Gaby Smyth and Company Chartered Accountants and Registered Auditors.

Screen Producers Ireland is Ireland’s representative body for producers and production companies throughout the country. Currently it has over 140 production companies in membership. SPI aims to protect the interests of their members, promote the production industry in Ireland and to provide information and services to its members.
