Jim Sheridan & David Yates Taking Part In Digital Biscuit Today
25 Jan 2013 : By Eva Hall
Jim Sheridan helped launch Digital Biscuit this week
The main event of the Digital Biscuit takes place in Dublin today, with Irish filmmaker Jim Sheridan, ‘Harry Potter’ direct David Yates, Brown Bag’s Darragh O’Connell and ‘Punky’ animation creator Lindsay Jane Sedgwick all taking part in events.

Yates, who directed four ‘Harry Potter’ films, including ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 and 2’, which starred Brendan and Domhnall Gleeson, will be the special guest at an In Conversation With event, which will be moderated by Jim Sheridan.

This event takes places at 2pm today, and will be followed by a Social Media to Enable Creativity in Filmmakers discussion with Andrew McAvinchey, which in turn will be followed by an In Conversation With Chris Nee, the creator of Disney Junior’s ‘Doc McStuffins’, and Lindsay Jane Sedgwick, the creator of RTÉ Junior animation ‘Punky’.

Brian Gilmore and Darragh O’Connell of Ireland’s Oscar-nominated animation company Brown Bag Films will both take part in two separate events; a discussion on how to drive creation, and a public talk with VFX supervisor of ‘Avatar’, Richard Baneham.

The Digital Biscuit, ran by the Screen Directors’; Guild of Ireland, was launched yesterday (January 25) and will run until Saturday (January 26).

This evening, a discussion on crowd funding your film will be held, with ‘The Hit Producer’ filmmaker Kevin de la Isla taking part. De la Isla funded his latest project, which stars Michelle Doherty, via a crowd sourcing website.
