Síol Scéal was established as a coproduction between ROSG and Eo Teilifís. Our aim is to develop new talent in writing and directing drama for Television. To date we have run four of these development schemes; Síol, Údar and two separate series of Scéal. On each scheme we develop six writers and six directors towards creating a half hour short film, which is then broadcast as a six part series on TG4.
Each short film is a self-contained story with a beginning, middle and end and tells of a journey of discovery for the central characters.
Since the schemes began 24 half hour short films have been produced and broadcast on TG4.
The various schemes have been funded by TG4, The BAI and Gréasán na Meán.
