Creative Ventures, an international company, with an office based in Kerry, is running a competition for film-makers at the moment.
They are looking for a 3 page synopsis of a script of a short film. The selected script is then made over 21 days with a full crew. The competition is open to the EU.
Applications can be made in in two ways. If you are someone with a production crew who would like to handpick yourself, you can do that. You can also apply as an individual with a script. Other crew who would like to participate in the project can also apply, be they directors, camera people, actors, sound engineers, lighting directors, focus pullers etc. To do that, you send an email stating your field of expertise and how you think you could help out as part of a production crew.
Keep in mind that the entire script will be filmed in the communities and landscapes of the West of Ireland … the Ring of Kerry or Connemara. Although the story does not necessarily have to contain an ‘Irish’ angle or theme, be aware that it will be filmed in Ireland. Keep the Irish landscape and weather in mind for your story.
The deadline for submitting your entries for Irish entries is March 31st, 2014. The 21 day shoot will take place in September/October 2014.

- A Full 4K Film Production Kit including:
