Screen Training Ireland is supporting two events at the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival 2015, Conquering The Script and Kubrick’s Cameras and The Cinematography of Barry Lyndon.

Kubrick’s Cameras and The Cinematography of Barry Lyndon – 10.30am, Saturday 21st March, Light House Cinema

This exciting event will bring together members of the crew from Barry Lyndon, Doug Milsome, Larry Smith, Laurie Frost, Joe Dunton and Luke Quigley and will discuss the making of the film, how they worked with director Stanley Kubrick and the techniques used to achieve the unforgettable look of the film, famous for its ultra low-light candlelit scenes. This is an unmissable event for aspiring camera practitioners and enthusiasts of Kubrick’s cinematic legacy. This event is in association with the Irish Society of Cinematographers.

Conquering the Script – Friday 27th March, Hugh Lane Gallery and Saturday 28th March, Wood Quay Venue

Conquering the Script will take place over two days on Friday the 27th and Saturday the 28th of March and will provide a creative forum for writers and writer/directors in Ireland where they can deepen their understanding of screen storytelling techniques, dissect a film from script to screen, talk to industry experts and access the possibility of one to one script advice. The two-day programme will culminate in an interview with Hossein Amini one of the most extraordinary screenwriters working today.

The first day of this two day event will take participants on a journey from the early generation of ideas and into the development of story through the paradigm of conflict and the crisis screen characters need to undergo, to render your film powerful and engaging. There will be a story debate with filmmakers about their completed films, the development process and the story choices they made. Panellist’s and guests on the day will include Lenny Abrahamson, as well as development specialists Juanita Wilson (Octagon Films) and Eoin O’Faolain (Samson Films).

The second day of the event kicks off with a debate on the current state of storytelling in Irish film and TV drama. As the day evolves there will be a further session that is devoted to kitting out your development tool box, more story debate with a feature director and a keynote interview to round up the day. Panellist’s and guests will include Michael Kinirons and Will Collins, Eugene O’Brien, Ian Power and Carol Morley as well as key note speaker Hussein Amini.
