Applications are now open for the second round of commissions of our talent initiative Right Here, run in association with Screen Scotland and the BBC.
Right Here is a two-year initiative that offers Scotland-based filmmakers a unique opportunity to create a 30-minute creative documentary for broadcast on BBC Scotland.
For the second round of commissions, we’re looking for three directors who seek to explore the rich diversity of Scottish identity through character-driven stories and beautiful imagery.
Initially, 8 – 10 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.
The application deadline is 12 noon on Friday 31st January 2020 and successful candidates will be informed by 19th February.
