Gearrscannáin 2011

14th June 2011 by Maura McHugh

GearrscannainScéim nua í ‘Gearrscannáin’ a bhfuil sé mar sprioc aici gearrscannáin as Gaeilge a sholáthar, a mbeidh tarraingt acu do lucht féachana ginearálta. Tá sé mar chuspóir ag an scéim go spreagfaí stiúrthóirí úra chun dul i bpriacal, chun dushlán a thabhairt don lucht féachana agus chun téamaí suimiúla a rachaidh i bhfeidhm orthu a chur os a gcomhair. Cé gur chóir go mbeidh sé mar aidhm ag na scannáin freastal ar lucht féachana fairsing, ba chóir go mbeidh siad in ann grádú ‘faoi 15′ a bhaint amach. Ní mór gur bunscéalta as Gaeilge atá sna hiarratais. Ní ghlacfar le gearrscannáin a cuireadh chuig BSÉ/IFB i mBéarla cheana. Déanfar an scéim a sholáthar ar-líne den chuid is mó.

Is é an 8ú Íúil an spriocdháta don scéim ‘Gearrscannáin’

Líon na scannán 2
Fad: Timpeall 8 nóiméad
Buiséad: Uasmhéid de €10,000 in aghaidh an scannáin
Formáid: Aon fhormáid dhigiteach d’ardchaighdeán
Teanga: Gaeilge

Cé atá i dteideal

Tá an scéim seo oscailte roimh scannánóirí arbh fhéidir leo cumas iarratas a dhéanamh: stiúrthóireachta drámaíochta a thaispeáint, ach nach bhfuil gearrscannáin déanta acu cheana féin ach amháin sa choláiste. Má bhaineann iarratasóirí úsáid as seóspól an choláiste is ar éigean go raibh ról ábhartha acu sa ghearrscannán sin, i.e. má chuireann siad iarratas isteach mar stiúrthóir is ar éigean gur stiúraigh siad an gearrscannán atá le feiceáil ar an seóspól a théann leis an iarratas.

Níl an scéim seo oscailte roimh mic léinn lánaimseartha.

Nós Imeachta:

Ba chóir foirmeacha iarratais a íoslódáil ó láithreán gréasáin BSÉ/IFB, ba chóir iad a chomhlánú ina n-iomlán agus iad a sheoladh – maraon leis na hábhair bhreise ar fad atá á n-iarraidh – chuig ceannáras BSÉ/IFB i nGaillimh. (Ní féidir cur isteach ar mhaoiniú BSÉ/IFB ar facs nó ar líne). Ní dhéanfar próiseáil ar iarratais neamhiomlána.

Déanfaidh grúpa meastóirí a cuirfidh BSÉ/IFB le chéile go hinmheánach agus go seachtrach na hiarratais a mheas, agus déanfaidh siad breithniú ar an scríbhneoireacht scripte agus ar an bhfoireann chruthaitheach.

Cearta:

Fánfaidh cearta eisiacha sna meáin in Éirinn agus cearta neamh-eisiacha spreagtha sa chuid eile den domhan le BSÉ. Fanfaidh na cearta eile ar fad leis an scannánóir.

Gnéithe Thábhachtacha na Scéime

Go ginearálta, ba chóir go gcuirfidh tallann Éireannach tús le scannáin faoin scéim ‘Gearrscannán’, agus ba chóir go mbeadh tallann Éireannach nó daoine atá ina gcónaí in Éirinn i gceannas go cruthaitheach orthu, agus go ndéanfar bainistiú orthu ó Éirinn.

Do thionscnaimh roghnaithe b’éigean do léiritheoirí na cearta ar fad ar fud na cruinne a shealbhú, gan teorainn ama agus sna meáin ar fad.

Ní cheadófaí ach léiritheoir amháin agus ní thugfaí creidiúnt ach do léiritheoir amháin do thionscnaimh roghnaithe.

Beidh na rátaí seo leanas i bhfeidhm maidir le buiséid léiriúcháin na scannán ar fad a dhéanfaí faoin scéim:

- Ráta laethúil d’aisteoirí agus do chriú (mar a aontaítear go bliantúil le Grúpa Scannán na gCeardchumann) Meitheamh 2011-Meitheamh 2012: €120

Beidh cearta faomhaithe ag BSÉ/IFB maidir leis na heilimintí seo leanas de scannáin a dhéantar faoin scéim:

  • Script scannánaithe (agus is féidir le BSÉ/IFB eagarthóir scripte a cheapadh i gcásanna áirithe)
  • Roghnú aisteoirí
  • Príomh-fhoireann theicniúil

Sky Arts Ignition

7th June 2011 by Maura McHugh

Sky Arts IgnitionSky has opened applications for Sky Arts Ignition: Futures Fund – a new bursary which will offer five young artists £ 30,000 each to fund their work for a full year.

The Sky Arts Ignition: Futures Fund is open to applications from young artists aged 18-30 living in the UK and Ireland. The fund is designed to bridge the gap between formal education and becoming a working artist.

The fund is run in association with IdeasTap, an arts charity, funding body and network of nearly 40,000 young creative people at the start of their careers. The scheme will also provide each artist with a mentor from Sky, who will help develop their skills and knowledge in the arts and commercial sector.

The Futures Fund is part of the Sky Arts Ignition Series, Sky’s recently announced initiative which will see Sky Arts collaborate with six arts organisations over the next two years to create brand new works, and expands on Sky’s commitment to developing and nurturing young talent.

“Talent and creativity is thriving in the arts today, but we recognise that people can’t fulfil their potential and pursue their artistic ambitions without support,” comments James Hunt, Director of Sky Arts. “Sky has long been one of the UK’s biggest investors in the arts, both on and off screen, but we think it’s vital to uphold that commitment right across the board – individuals who are just starting out are equally as important as organisations with a wealth of experience behind them. This is why we’ve launched Futures Fund as part of Sky Arts Ignition – we’re hoping that we will be able to support and nurture the next generation of Bussells, Kennedys, Emins and Cumberbatches.”

“IdeasTap is delighted to be partnering with Sky Arts on the Ignition Futures Fund, which epitomises IdeasTap’s ethos of investing in talented young people at the start of their careers to launch them into the professional world,” adds Peter De Haan, Chief Executive of IdeasTap. “At IdeasTap we’re reimagining the way that emerging creative talent is funded, nurtured and showcased in the digital age and we’re thrilled to have Sky Arts on board.“

The Sky Arts Ignition: Futures Fund is open to individual artists working in visual art, theatre, performance art, music, film, dance or literature. Applicants must be aged 18-30 on 19 September 2011 and be based in either the UK or Ireland. To apply, applicants need to explain how the bursary would help support their career and enhance and extend their work. For details click on the Futures Fund tab at sky.com/skyartsignition.

Interaction with the City

15th April 2011 by Maura McHugh

Dublin city public art

Dublin City Council’s Public Art Programme offers opportunities for artists to engage with the city, making new work that responds to the context of Dublin as the capital of Ireland, international city, and a city of communities and localities. The Programme intends to create connections and collaborations between different areas of Dublin City Council’s work as well as interconnections between art, city and the public.

This is the first formally conceived Public Art Programme for Dublin City. The programme builds on the work of the Open Spaces programme initiated by the Dublin City Arts Office in 2007. Open Spaces explored the making and production of art in open spaces in the city through partnered events, talks and critical responses. The Public Art Programme also builds on previous public art commissions initiated by Dublin City Council under the Per Cent for Art Scheme. These commissions included permanent artwork and also temporary and processed based commissions.

Philosophy

It is the intention of the Dublin City Public Art Programme to offer opportunities across many art forms, such as architecture, dance, film, literature, music, opera, theatre, verbal arts, and visual art; including all aspects of contemporary arts practice such as performance, live art, multimedia, video art, sound art, etc. The focus will be on new work and on an openness towards different ways of art-making and expression. In addition to the work of individual artists there is scope for collaborations, collective responses and interdisciplinary practices. There is also respect for different forms of art expression and their duration, encompassing temporary, time-based or permanent work.

The Programme

Four strands have been devised to deliver the Dublin City Public Art Programme. Individually, these strands have distinct characteristics but when combined are intended to offer a cohesive approach to the Dublin City Public Art Programme. They are designed to offer artists opportunities to respond to the city in different ways that are reflective of the breath of artistic practice and that offer the public many different kinds of opportunities to relate to and engage with the programme. The Strands are:

  • Strand 1 – Dublin
  • Strand 2 – Interaction with the City
  • Strand 3 – Connecting with the Public
  • Strand 4 – City Contexts

Briefing and Information

A briefing meeting will be arranged for interested artists, curators and artistic directors. A question and answer session will form an important part of this meeting. The meeting will take place in The LAB, Foley Street, Dublin 1 at 1.00 pm on Tuesday 3rd May. Booking for this event is essential. To book email The Arts Office at artsoffice@dublincity.ie

The closing date for initial proposals for Strand 2 – Interaction with the City is 4.00 p.m. on Monday June 27th June, 2011.

More information on guidelines and the application process is available online.
