Details of film and TV COVID insurance scheme published
Quote
The government has now released draft proposals for its Film and TV Production Restart Scheme.

The government backed £500m scheme was announced back in July and is aimed at helping film and TV shows struggling to get insurance for Covid-related costs get back into production. It came about after industry lobbying.

Proposals state that to be eligible, productions must be spending at least 50% of their budget in the UK. Excluded productions include live news and current affairs, live sports and events coverage, theatre productions that are being filmed and all commercials and corporate productions.

Productions will also need to meet various ‘social commitments’ such as not using unpaid runners and paying National Living Wage. Productions will also have to comply with commitments around diversity.

The scheme still has to get State Aid approval from the European Commission before it can officially go ahead.

DCMS have appointed Marsh Commercial as the Third Party Administrator for the Scheme.

The registration deadline for the scheme is 31 December 2020, and claims will be able to be submitted up to 30 November 2021 for losses incurred up until 30 June 2021.

 TIFF 2020 Review: Wolfwalkers 
Quote
Despite her widower father insisting that she must stay behind while he hunts wolves, Robyn is determined to follow in his footsteps with a pet falcon serving as her guide.  Venturing into the forest leads to the apprentice hunter to uncover a magical and rare breed known as wolfwalkers that are human while awake and wolves when sleeping.   A friendship develops causing Robyn to experience a spiritual transformation that puts her into direct conflict with her father and the settlers he has vowed to protect.

It is funny to have Sean Bean voicing a character wearing a big heavy coat and protecting a city surrounding by huge walls considering his previous role of Ned Stark in Game of Thrones.

Cartoon Saloon to home-premiere Wolfwalkers at Kilkenny Animated
Quote
Local audiences will get their first chance to see the exciting new Cartoon Saloon film next month during the Kilkenny Animated festival.

Wolfwalkers had it’s world premiere to huge critical acclaim over the weekend as part of the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival.

The annual festival of local & global animation is hosted every year by the four-time Oscar-nominated local studio.

This year it’s on from from October 2nd to 4th as Co-director Tom Moore outlines “Our home town premiere’s going to be a screening & it’ll be in stages, only 50 people at a time can go in, but we’re going to be screening it non-stop for a couple of days over the festival so hopefully people will get a chance to see it then ahead of the release on the 13 of October but it’ll be in the cinemas from 30 October right through the month of November so I’m hoping that everyone will get a chance to get out and get off their couch & go see it in the cinema and in a cinema experience”.

Co-Director Ross Stewart says “The only kindof feedback that we could see was from like a live feed on Twitter, people sharing their opinions on it but thankfully everyone has, well nearly everyone, has very positive reviews but yeah it is a shame to not have a premiere in a big building where you can guage the audiences response in live time they laugh at the jokes or cry at the sad parts”.

Ross adds that the star-studded cast also includes loads of Kilkenny locals noting “For the actual cast itself because we had a few stars like Sean Bean in there we wanted to get in, for the Kilkenny people, we wanted to get real people who lived in Kilkenny with the proper accent and that so all of the crowds and all of the kids, all of the the tertiary or secondary characters, they’re all Kilkenny people or people that have a good Kilkenny accent so it’s authentic that way”.

Sean Bean and Stephen Graham to star in new Jimmy McGovern drama Time for BBC One

Quote
Sean Bean (Broken, Game Of Thrones) and Stephen Graham (Line Of Duty, The Virtues) will reunite to lead a gripping new prison drama from Jimmy McGovern for BBC One. Time is a three-part series and will be produced by BBC Studios Production. It begins filming in Liverpool this autumn.
Seen through the eyes of two very different men, Time is a visceral and high-stakes portrayal of life in the modern British penal system. It is a story of guilt and forgiveness, punishment and penitence and the impact that prison has on all those who pass through it. Time is emotional and thrilling, showcasing the performances of two of Britain’s finest and best-loved actors.

Sean Bean takes on the role of Mark Hebden, a teacher, husband and father, who killed an innocent man in an accident. Consumed by guilt, he accepts and even welcomes his four-year sentence. Separated from his family, he has no idea what to expect in this unforgiving new environment and needs to learn quickly how to survive.

Stephen Graham is Eric Reid, a prison officer. Caring and honest, Eric tries his very best to protect those in his charge, something which is a daily challenge in this understaffed and high-tension world. When one of the most dangerous inmates identifies his weakness, Eric faces an impossible choice between his principles and his love for his family.

Both Eric and Mark, officer and inmate, are seemingly trapped by their pasts and unsure of their futures. Each has to not only survive, but to find the strength and the way to move forward.

Writer Jimmy McGovern says: “The BBC have given me a brilliant young director and two of the greatest actors on the planet. I am overjoyed.”

Sean Bean says: “Getting to be involved in a Jimmy McGovern drama again is a real privilege and it will be great to be reunited with Stephen. Mark Hebden is another of Jimmy’s complex and superbly written characters and I am looking forward to bringing him to life on screen.”

Stephen Graham says: “It is an absolute honour to be working with Jimmy again, I’m feeling blessed. I’m excited to be working with Lewis as I have heard so many incredible things about him as a director, I can’t wait to get stuck in. Of course, I am made up to be back on set with Sean.”

Piers Wenger, Controller of BBC Drama, says: “Jimmy has a unique style of creating thought-provoking dramas which tell raw and emotional stories, and Time is exactly that. With Sean and Stephen in lead roles, Jimmy and Lewis behind the camera, Time is a shining example of British drama talent at its best.”

Tom Sherry, Executive Producer and Head of BBC Studios Drama North and Scotland, says: “It’s a joy to be working with Jimmy again. He writes unforgettable characters who live on in your mind long after you have seen them. Time will show you a world within a world and leave you questioning, what would you do?”

Time was commissioned by Piers Wenger, Controller of BBC Drama and Charlotte Moore, Chief Content Officer. It will be directed by Lewis Arnold and executive produced by Tom Sherry and Michael Parke for BBC Studios and Lucy Richer for the BBC. It will be produced by Simon Maloney. It is being distributed internationally by BBC Studios.

Sean Bean and Stephen Graham to lead new BBC prison drama Time

Quote
A new BBC One prison drama from acclaimed writer Jimmy McGovern will see Game of Thrones star Sean Bean reunite with Line of Duty‘s Stephen Graham.

The pair previously appeared alongside each other in an episode of McGovern’s anthology series The Accused back in 2012 and will share the spotlight once again in three-part series Time.

The drama will follow life in the modern British penal system as seen from the perspective of two very different men – a teacher who killed an innocent man in an accident (Bean) and a caring and honest prison officer (Graham).

It is described as “visceral”, “emotional”, and “thrilling” by the BBC, which further calls it a “story of guilt and forgiveness, punishment and penitence and the impact that prison has on all those who pass through it”.

 The series will be directed by Lewis Arnold, whose previous credits include episodes of Humans and Broadchurch, and filming is expected to begin in Liverpool this Autumn.
