MG ALBA CALL FOR GAELIC WRITERS’ VIEWS AS CHILDREN’S DRAMA FILM IS SHOWCASED AT THE MÒD

Current and aspiring Gaelic writers are being asked for their views on developing their TV writing talent by MG ALBA, the Gaelic Media Service.

A survey, which is available through the MG ALBA’s website and is being supported by HIE Emergents, is asking for opinions from writers on the sort of work they currently undertake, and what resources would encourage them to write more or embark on different forms of their work. The questionnaire has already had nearly 50 responses and MG ALBA are appealing for other writers to make their views known.

The call for further responses was made as a new European Broadcasting Union Children's Drama Scheme short film, commissioned by MG ALBA, has been showcased at the Mòd in Stornoway.

Na Saboteurs was filmed on location in Ness, Isle of Lewis, and has an original Gaelic script written by acclaimed writer Catriona Lexy Campbell, who is also making her directorial debut. It is produced by BBC ALBA presenter, Fiona MacKenzie and Kirsty Hines-Mackay.

The new production also features two exceptional young talents in the lead roles: Zoe Mustian and Daniel Macleod. Completing the cast are Artair Donald and Donna Morrison, two of Gaelic’s most well-established performers. Original music was also commissioned for the drama by Ross B. Wilson of Tidelines - his first TV commission. The short film will be shown on BBC ALBA as part of the channel’s Christmas schedule.

Na Saboteurs, and the survey, forms part of MG ALBA’s pursuit to develop Gaelic writing talent.

Writers of all ages and experiences are encouraged to complete the short questionnaire which will then inform MG ALBA’s strategy in this area over future months and years.

Iseabail Mactaggart, Director of Strategy and Partnership at MG ALBA, said: “Developing talent across our creative sector is an intrinsic part of MG ALBA’s work and we are committed to ensuring that writing talent is nurtured as part of this strategy.

“For that reason, we want to learn about the experiences of those who already write in Gaelic – whether for personal enjoyment or professionally. Similarly, we want to hear from those who may want to start writing or write more but feel they are unprepared to do so, maybe through a lack of training or confidence.

“Knowledge of the Gaelic language, and writing skills in particular, can also affect a person’s ability to put pen to paper. We want to know if and where barriers exist and what MG ALBA can do to help overcome these, so we create the foundation for the very best of Gaelic writing to be seen on screen.”

Catriona Lexy Campbell, writer of Na Saboteurs, said: “Na Saboteurs provides an opportunity for young Gaelic talent to get involved in production and we are thrilled with Zoe and Daniel’s performances and how well the film has turned out.

“I was pleased to have the chance to write the script for Na Saboteurs and we need to equip more people with the skill and confidence to develop their Gaelic writing. I have already completed MG ALBA’s survey and would encourage everyone to do so no matter what their level of writing experience is. Only by knowing what needs to be achieved can resources and expertise be directed in the most effective way possible.”

MG ALBA A’ SIREADH BHEACHDAN BHO SGRÌOBHAICHEAN GÀIDHLIG

Tha MG ALBA a’ sireadh bheachdan air leasachadh tàlant sgrìobhadh tbh bho sgrìobhaichean a tha mu thràth stèidhichte agus iadsan aig a bheil miann a bhith ri sgrìobhadh.

Tha suirbhidh ùr, a tha ri fhaighinn tro làrach-lìn MG ALBA agus a tha a’ faighinn taic bho HIE Emergents, ag iarraidh beachdan bho sgrìobhaichean air an seòrsa obair a tha iad a’ dèanamh agus dè na goireasan a bheireadh misneachd dhaibh barrachd a sgrìobhadh no leasachadh a dhèanamh air an cuid obrach. Tha timcheall air 50 neach mu thràth air an t-suirbhidh a lìonadh a-steach agus tha MG ALBA ag iarraidh air sgrìobhaichean eile an cuid bheachdan a chuir a-steach.

Tha an t-suirbhidh ga foillseachadh aig an aon àm agus a tha am film goirid, pàirt de sgeama dràma an EBU (European Broadcasting Union) agus air a choimiseanaidh le MG ALBA, air a shealltainn aig a’ Mhòd ann an Steòrnabhagh.

Chaidh Na Saboteurs a chlàradh ann an Nis, Eilean Leòdhais. Chaidh an sgriobt Gàidhlig a sgrìobhadh a dh’aona ghnothaich airson an dràma leis an sgrìobhaiche ainmeil Catriona Lexy Chaimbeul, a bha cuideachd na stiùiriche airson a’ chiad uair. Chaidh a riochdachadh le preseantair BBC ALBA Fiona NicChoinnich agus le Kirsty Hines-Mackay.

B’ e dithis òg tàlantach - Zoe Mustian agus Daniel Macleòid – a ghabh pàirt san fhilm, a thuilleadh air Artair Donald agus Donna Mhoireasdan air a bheil daoine deagh eòlach. B’ e Ross B. Wilson bho Tidelines a sgrìobh an ceòl airson an fhilm – a chiad choimisean tbh. Thèid am film goirid a shealltainn air BBC ALBA mar phàirt de chlàr na Nollaige.

Tha Na Saboteurs, agus foillseachadh na suirbhidh, nam pàirt de mhiann MG ALBA tàlant sgrìobhadh Gàidhlig a leasachadh.

Tha sgrìobhaichean de gach aois agus eòlas air am brosnachadh gus an t-suirbhidh ghoirid a lìonadh a-steach agus cuiridh seo ri ro-innleachd MG ALBA san ùine ri teachd.

Thuirt Iseabail Nic an t-Sagairt, Stiùiriche Ro-innleachd & Co-bhanntachd MG ALBA: “Tha leasachadh tàlant air feadh ar roinn chruthachail aig cridhe obair MG ALBA agus tha sinn dealasach ann a bhith a’ dèanamh cinnteach gu bheil an tàlant sgriobhaidh air àrach mar phàirt den ro-innleachd sin.

“Airson an adhbhar sin, tha sinn airson ionnsachadh mun t-eòlas acasan a tha mu thràth air sgrìobhadh ann an Gàidhlig – airson adhbharan cur-seachad no adhbharan proifeiseanta. Tha sinn cuideachd airson cluinntinn bhuapasan as docha a tha airson tòiseachadh air sgrìobhadh no an tuilleadh a sgrìobhadh ach a tha a’ faireachdainn nach eile iad ullaichte airson a leithid, ’s docha ri linn cion trèanadh no cion misneachd.

“Dh’fhaodadh eòlas air Gàidhlig, gu h-àraidh sgilean sgriobhaidh, buaidh a thoirt air comas neach peann a chuir ri pàipear. Ma tha cnapan-starra ann tha sinn airson faighinn a-mach càite bheil iad agus dè dh’fhaodadh MG ALBA a dhèanamh gus faighinn tarsainn orra seo, gus a bheil sinn a’ cruthachadh bun-stèidh airson an sgrìobhadh Gàidhlig as fheàrr a th’ ann air an sgrion.”

Thuirt Catriona Lexy Chaimbeul, sgrìobhaiche Na Saboteurs: “Tha Na Saboteurs a’ toirt cothrom daoine òga tàlantach a dhol an sàs ann an riochdachadh agus tha sinn cho toilichte le Zoe agus Daniel agus mar a thionnadh am film a-mach.

“Bha mi toilichte an cothrom fhaighinn an sgriobt a sgrìobhadh airson an fhilm agus feumaidh sinn tuilleadh dhaoine a bhrosnachadh gus na sgilean sgriobhaidh Gàidhlig aca a leasachadh. Tha mise mu thràth air suirbhidh MG ALBA a lìonadh a-steach agus tha mi a’ moladh do dhaoine an aon rud a dhèanamh, ge bith dè an t-eòlas sgrìobhadh a th’ aca cheana.
