As an example of a successful documentary which has accessed the opportunities that both Creative Europe MEDIA and Screen Training Ireland offers, a case study of School Life (In Loco Parentis) will be presented by director Neasa Ní Chianáin and producer David Rane and will focus on the highs and lows of the development process, the supports received and training programmes they participated in.
