Right Here: Inspiration Workshop Glasgow

Right Here is a talent initiative run in association with Screen Scotland and BBC Scotland that offers Scotland-based filmmakers a unique opportunity to create a 30-minute creative documentary for broadcast on BBC.

We are looking for 3 directors who seek to explore the rich diversity of Scottish identity through character-driven stories and beautiful imagery. This is a unique opportunity for emerging directors to take risks on form and content.

Initially, 8 – 12 projects will be pre-selected. The directors will learn to hone their skills and deliver their vision through bespoke individual consultancies. Among these projects, three will be fully commissioned (£22K – £27K), produced by SDI, and broadcast on BBC Scotland in 2021.

This Inspiration Workshop will explain the aims of Right Here and provide tips on how to improve your chances of being selected. We would like to take this opportunity to prepare and inspire the best filmmakers to take part in this scheme. This workshop, open to filmmakers who have directed at least 2 short films broadcast or publicly screened in festivals, will take place in Glasgow on Monday 20th January (3.30pm-5pm). To attend please register below.

This free Inspiration Workshop will offer participants:
– an overview of the initiative and its aims
– tips on how to improve their chances of being selected
– an opportunity to informally pitch their idea(s) and receive feedback
