As well as our own work in the Irish and British film industries, we are both passionate about discovering and developing new talent. Drawing on years of combined experience we have designed practical workshops for actors, directors and writers in the film and television industries.

We specialise in practical training, believing that time in front of the camera is the only way to properly develop your camera craft. Our group classes promise to inform and educate in a comfortable and inclusive atmosphere. We cater to the needs of artists at all levels, from beginners to the highly experienced.

Film Venture also operates as a production company of original narrative fiction films. Credits include feature films The Callback Queen (2 x IFTA nominations 2016), Duets (in development) as well as many award winning short films Body of Christ, Parfum, Nocturne Passage, Exercise Caution, QED and the Oscar Longlisted, IFTA Nominated Lily.

As well as our group courses we offer intensive one to one tuition sessions for film, individual showreel scene shoots, headshot photography and a variety of showreel editing packages to suit your budget.
