The recipient of this year's Warner Bros. Creative Talent scholarship has been announced.
Allyn Quigley, an MA Screenwriting student at the National Film School at Dublin’s Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology (IADT) has been awarded the prestigious accolade.
The scholarship will provide Allyn with funding support and a short, paid placement at Warner Bros. Ireland’s Dublin offices, as well as access to screenings and mentoring support from Warner Bros. executives in the country.
Previous Warner Bros. Creative Talent scholars, Miriam Devitt, Ciaran Dooley and Daniel Kelly, have gone on to enjoy further success. Miriam Devitt’s short film “The Space in Between” was recently shortlisted for the 2017 Aer Lingus Irish Filmmaker competition and Ciaran Dooley’s “The Great Wide Open” was nominated for an Irish Film and Television award in 2016. Daniel Kelly has also celebrated awards success after winning an Irish Writer’s Guild Award in 2015 for Best Screenplay with his film “Into Night.”
