Good News For Short Film in Wales

leave a comment »

This week has seen the launch of the Digital Shorts Wales scheme. Finally, a new short film scheme in Wales with some decent budgets for the films, apparently between £7k and £13k. They’re accepting submissions from writer/director/producer teams, as well as individual applications from writers and directors. The deadline for applications is the 16th November.

There’s a lot of talent in Wales who have desperately needed this scheme for a long time, so fingers crossed that the finished films will reflect the potential of the people here. Get your applications in. There’s a mentoring element to the scheme that will hopefully be very useful.

On a side note, reading through the guidelines, I’ve noticed that “only original and newly-composed music or pre-cleared library music (cleared for all formats) can be used”. So take out that bit in the script where the protagonist drives down the street to the Stereophonics. Please.
