Tralee got a sprinkling of movie magic this week as Brian Nolan and his team of Broadcast Production trainees begin work with an impressive group of industry professionals to make their first ever 'Mentored Movie' in Kerry's ETB's National Digital Skills Centre in the Monavalley.

A new concept for the training centre, the mentored movie brings industry professionals together with Film/TV trainees to collaborate on filming a feature, a comedy series entitled 'TX'.

Cheers and Seinfeld writer Andy Cowen was involved in mentoring the writing group and developed the initial storyline. Claire Cassidy (Director) and Eve O'Mahony (Producer) adding finishing touches.

The first person to commit to the crew was lighting expert Mo Flam (Black Swan) followed by Andrea O'Connor (Spotlight) Ciaran Tanham (Love/Hate,) and Noel Quinn (The Tudors,)

The Centre also runs The Dawn Workshops - Media industry training by and for the industry, supported by the KETB. Named after the movie "The Dawn", Ireland's first talkie feature, shot by Thomas G Cooper in Killarney in 1934 and restored in 2017 by KETB Broadcast Production students.
