Emily and Brian have over 20 years of teaching experience between them. Currently they teach each summer (Acting and Film) at the Berridge Programs located at historic Chateau le Mont Epinguet (pictured below).

From September 2018, they will begin education programs in Filmmaking, Acting and Singing around Ireland. From classroom sessions in schools to individual tutoring.


An introduction to writing, directing, shooting and editing films. The course will cover topics such as composition, lighting, framing and sound. We also briefly cover a brief history of film.

The 3 Day Workshop is aimed at transition year students and above who have an interest in the world of film. 

With his film screened all around the world from Hollywood to London to Cork, Brian is now bringing his experience to Irish schools. He has worked as a producer, director, director of photography and editor and has produced work for the BBC and Children in Need. See a portfolio of his work here and a collection of his Berridge Film Program films here. Over the past four summers of teaching in Berridge, his film program has produced an awarding winning filmmaker and another past student just had a short film screened at SXSW in Austin, Texas.
