Calling All Film-Makers

Ancient Connections is an exciting heritage and arts programme led by Pembrokeshire County Council that will link communities across the Irish Sea and generate new works of art, community projects, events and activities inspired by the stories that connect these two regions of north Pembrokeshire and north Wexford.

Abarta Heritage has been engaged to deliver a programme of research, training and a Tourism Ambassador scheme. Community involvement is at the heart of this aspect of the Ancient Connections project. The aim is to involve the community as much as possible and leave a legacy of skills in the project regions. In addition, Abarta Heritage’s team, split between Wales and Ireland, will work with the local communities to develop a group of tourism ambassadors who can share the rich stories and histories of these areas with visitors for many years to come.

We have received the following information from Ancient Connections and wanted to share this exciting opportunity with you all. For more information please contact them directly:

Ancient Connections wish to appoint a film-maker to create a short documentary film about the project Animating Schools, a cross-border exchange project with schools in St Davids, Pembrokeshire, and Ferns, Wexford, to create aminations that link the stories of the two regions, starting in February 2020.

The documentary film-maker will be expected to follow the progress of the project from start to completion of the short animation films. The documentary film is expected to include: footage of the exchange process and experiences of the children of travelling between these two locations; the creative work process and sharing of ideas and knowledge; clips from the animations; and to-camera interviews by key project staff, teachers and pupils.
