Screen Wexford's Writers Scripting for Broadcast Academy
Bodecii Film in association with Screen Skills Ireland and Screen Wexford are searching for emerging writers in the Wexford region to take part in a Scripting for Broadcast Academy.

The closing date for the first round is Monday, February 15th.

This unique professional development workshop series is specifically aimed at writers from, or located in, the Wexford region. The course is delivered by Bodecii Film and funded by Screen Skills Ireland, Screen Wexford, Creative Ireland, and Wexford County Council Arts Office, as part of their commitment to supporting filmmakers and film production in the region.

This is Phase One of a two-phase programme, which will endeavour to represent a diverse range of new original voices and talent from all backgrounds. In Phase One, emerging Wexford writers will work in a collaborative writer’s room environment with established and experienced Lead Writer/Series Producer and Show Runner, Paul Walker (RedRock, Call the midwife, Eastenders, River City, BBC Writers Academy) and will acquire the skills to become TV broadcast writers.

They will also engage with experienced TV Director, Laura Way (Red Rock, East Enders, Blood, The Holiday) and Producer Fiona Kinsella (Head of Production Tile Media/Executive Producer Jumper Productions) throughout the process.

Industry experts including Directors, Producers, Screen Writers, Talent Agents, and Editing Commissioners will feature as guest speakers throughout the year.

Upon completion of Phase One of the programme, each of the participants will end up with a one-hour broadcast standard TV SCRIPT.

(In Phase Two of the programme, Bodecii Film will endeavour to commission four to six of the writers and their scripts to enter into further development of a six-part ORIGINAL ANTHOLOGY SERIES based in County Wexford.)

On completion of the writing workshops, writers will attend an industry panel seminar (taking place online until further notice), exploring the current industry landscape for Irish writers, career development, and funding opportunities, along with practical advice on moving into production from script to screen.

This unique professional development workshop series is specifically aimed at writers from, or located in, the Wexford region. The course is delivered by Bodecii Film and funded by Screen Skills Ireland, Screen Wexford, Creative Ireland, and Wexford County Council Arts Office, as part of their commitment to supporting filmmakers and film production in the region.

“All TV shows and films start as an idea, grow into a story, and are crafted into a screenplay before they are delivered to our screens. Wexford is bursting with untapped talent, creativity, and original storytellers,” said Laura Way, Bodecii Films. “Bodecii Film continues to find and support local talent, develop their skillset and alongside Screen Wexford, help build the indigenous Film and TV industry in the county by bringing fresh voices and untold stories to our screens. This ambitious and unique course is led by industry experts with no cost to participants, providing an opportunity to those living in the county from all cultures and backgrounds who have a passion for writing for TV and film and a unique perspective of the world.”
