Wash Your Eyes talks

5th June 2015 by Maura McHugh

Dearbhla Walsh, Steven Benedict, and Malcolm Campbell talk heroes.

The first talk in the SDGI’s Wash Your Eyes series of discussions, in association with the WGI, took place last night. The three evenings will focus on harnessing the success of Irish writers and screenwriters, and connecting them with directors with the hope of future collaborations.

Last night Dearbhla Walsh, Steven Benedict, and Malcolm Campbell talked about ‘Adaptation: The Hero’s Journey’.

The topic for the next meeting is The Secret Life of Contracts: Everything creatives need to know about legal issues, and will take place from 6:30-8:30pm, Thursday, 18 June in The Palace Bar, 21 Fleet Street, Dublin 2.

It will feature Colin Kavanagh (Arthur Cox), Birch Hamilton (SDGI), and David Kavanagh (Writers Guild), and the panel intends to empower directors to formalise creative agreements to get that project pitch ready.

This session is valuable for both novice and veteran directors as it explores the complex legal process that directors should understand when embarking on their film projects. Colin Kavanagh will guide you through the steps and challenges necessary to take your project from a creative relationship to a formal legal arrangement.

The theme of the final session will be The Creative Mind: How I tell stories, and will take place from 6:30-8:30pm, Wednesday, 1 July in The Palace Bar, 21 Fleet Street, Dublin 2.

The panelists will be: Lenny Abrahamson, John Banville, Brendan & Niall Heery, Lisa McInerney, Terry McMahon, Paul Murray, Christian O’Reilly, and Carmel Winters.

The discussion will explore why they choose their medium of film/TV making, literary fiction, and/or novel writing. They will also examine the evolving relationship between the narrator and the audience and how this impacts storytelling. Is the medium the message and does the artist pick the medium or the medium pick the artist?

Please RSVP to events@sdgi.ie or contact SDGI at 01-6337433 – this event is open to SDGI and WGI members only.
