From Sarah Barrow, Head of Lincoln School of Media, on Ewen Glass one of the teaching team who is a Lincoln-based screenwriter amongst his other talents in the creative industries:
LSM Lecturer Ewen Glass was one of five filmmakers selected to be supported by Creative England to attend the prestigious talent development programme at last month’s Edinburgh International Film Festival (EIFF). EIFF Talent Lab took place during the festival and offered up-and-coming filmmakers the opportunity to learn from the world’s key film industry players. It brought together thirty emerging directors, producers and screenwriters with key UK and international film professionals in a number of ways to help advise and inspire them for the next steps in their careers.
In Edinburgh, Ewen benefited from a variety of advice sessions, workshops and masterclasses aimed at the next generation of film talent. He had the unmissable opportunity to discuss the industry, their projects and their ideas with a selection of invited industry professionals including sales agents, executive producers, literary agents, story editors and distributors. Ewen said: “An invaluable experience, one which not only arms you with a whole new set of professional contacts and an improved skillset, but which fosters a sense of community among up and coming film-makers.
