Saturday April 3rd
12:00pm – 3:00pm
Via Zoom Link
In the Session, our actors will be given the opportunity to perform a film of T.V monologue for Ruth where she will offer feedback and redirection.
Each actor will be allocated a 10 min performance slot at the start of the session.
The final hour will be devoted to a Q&A with Ruth.
This is a brilliant opportunity to get directly in front of a working T.V director who is often the final link in the chain of decision making of who is cast in T.V soaps and dramas alongside the Producer.
Ruth Carney is an experienced TV and Theatre Director who has worked both in the West End and on Broadway. She attained an MA in Theatre Directing at The Russian Theatre Academy, Moscow and Middlesex University, after which she completed the Emerging Directors Programme at the National Theatre and assisted directors such as Hettie Macdonald and Giles Croft.
Alongside her own successful independent work as a director, Ruth has also acted as Associate Director to Matthew Warchus on his West End/Broadway productions of Lord of the Rings, Our House and Ghost. Ruth was Associate Director in the inaugural season after reopening of The Cruicibe theatre in Sheffield. She successfully completed the BBC Directors Scheme 2016 with a placement on DOCTORS and has since directed many blocks on the programme.
Ruth was one of the Directors on the new High End TV Stepping Up Scheme. Funded by Creative Skillset’s High End TV Levy Fund with the aim of bringing on the next generation of diverse talent in the HETV industry, the scheme is run by the NFTS and led by Bafta and Emmy winning Producer John Chapman.
In addition she was a participant on the Directors UK Inspire Scheme which saw her being mentored by Rebecca Gatward and shadowing on Cold Feet.
Ruth has just finished shooting 13 episodes of T.V Soap Emmerdale.
