Second Series of ‘Scéal’ Begins Production
22 May 2013 : By Gearóid Gilmore
Production still from the set of the new 'Scéal' series
With the broadcast of the first series of Scéal coming to an end on TG4, filming has commenced on the second series of the programme.

Scéal, a development scheme for writers and directors, follows on from previous successful schemes, Síol and Údar.

Each development scheme saw writers and directors go on to produce further television drama, with some receiving awards in recognition of their work. One of the most recent awards was for the Scéal short film, Bás Arto Leary (The Death of Arto Leary), which took the Imeall Choice Award at this year’s Dingle International Film Festival.

Co-produced by ROSG and Eo Teilifís for TG4 and the BAI and Gréasán na Meán, Scéal is a development scheme that offers talented new writers and directors an opportunity to adapt a well-known story from Irish language literature or folklore towards a half hour short film. Chosen stories were adapted from Irish language short stories, poems, folklore and other work that represents the Irish tradition of storytelling.

18 short films have previously been produced for TG4, the BAI and Gréasán na Meán under the schemes, Síol, Údar and Scéal. Each scheme gives six writers and six directors new works to develop under the tutelage of experts in both script writing and television directing. Through a series of project-based workshops, Scéal guides the writers and directors though each step, from the script right up to the production.

The next instalment in the ‘Scéal’ series will air tonight on TG4 at 22:00.
