LSAD Graduate Show Promo. Special thanks to Pat Shortt, Mark Griffin and all the contributors. Tune into the Facebook page at 3pm Sat 30th May!

Would like to share a little gag reel piece some of the crew and myself did for a wrap party in 2006.

Filmed on location in Ryan’s Pub (Jacksie’s Bar) in Killoskully, Co.Tipperary, and re-edited for the repeat of the series on RTÉ One (Sundays at 8pm) and the RTÉ Player.

We had great fun filming this and trying to recreate the scene, characters and filming style of the original programme. Thanks to; Francis Ryan (playing Jimmy), Mark Murray (Dan) and Kevin Zemrowsky (Timmy) for playing their parts and for all the other crew who helped set it up.

Had the pleasure of filming and editing this package for the Hospitality Training & Education Centre, where some of the shots featured on the RTÉ programme, “Ireland On Call’ on Tuesday 21st April.

The package highlights the fantastic work by the centre with the Volunteer learners, who are providing high quality meals for the front line workers across the mid-west.

Press Release (in part)

The operation has also seen significant support from businesses in the region and beyond. Bernadette says: “The support we have gotten has been fantastic. Irema Ireland in Kilmallock supplied the face masks for all our food production and delivery staff. Delivery containers were supplied by Noel O’Connor of Pat O’Connor Butchers, along with plastic crates from Richardson’s Foods and wooden trays from Pat The Baker. Paul Cross Sharpening Services, based in Rathangan, County Kildare, provided uniforms and protective clothing for deliveries. And, Pallas Foods even provided us with Easter eggs for all the food deliveries going out over the Easter weekend!”

 

Responding to the launch of the new initiative, Bedelia Collins, COVID-19 Co-ordinator of Resources and Service Offers, HSE Mid West Community Healthcare, says the service is very welcome: “Bernadette and her team have been so professional and so easy to work with, which is just what’s needed at the moment. The flexibility that’s been offered with the service is great, especially with the transporting of meals to the different locations in the region. Staff are really touched and very grateful. They are delighted with the quality of food. We started with almost 100 meals on Thursday and expect this to increase significantly in the coming days.”

Thanks to our student assistants for all their help in setting up, Louise, Lelia, Jamie, Julie, and Thomas and to Gerry Meagher, Thomas Mulcahy & Jamie & Julie for operating the sound and lighting.

Delighted to say that the post production on ‘Before His Eyes’ short film is coming to a close.

It has been a great project to work on with Director, Paul Boyle, Producer Meara Owen Griffiths, Cormac Brenock on sound, Mark Griffin as Camera Assistant as well as the rest of the great cast and crew who helped out during the 5 day production in July.

All the locations were in Killaloe, Co. Clare. with a special mention to Frank and Kieran Boland for their excellent work on the sets, props and art direction which certainly showed in the end cut.

Before His Eyes will be hopefully hitting the Irish Film Festival circuit from the Autumn onwards so please do check it out.

This week marks the third year of the Creative Broadcast and Film Production Programme (CBFP) at LIT Moylish. Over the past three years many changes that were made for this programme (formerly the Video & Sound Technology Programme) have flourished and have helped increase the student numbers in applying each year. This year being no exception.

With the merger of the in-house Limerick Film Festival with the Richard Harris International Film Festival, The Annual Student Showcase event, Studio Tours, In-House production Unit, as well as special guest lectures and industry workshops, students of the CBFP have more opportunities to learn, network and test their skills in industry standard practices than ever before.

Also with the fact that the CBFP programme is now a part of the Department of Design at Limerick School of Art and Design, there will be further opportunities for collaboration with other design programmes in both the Clare Street and Clonmel campus’.

While this years cohort is now full and beginning in the coming days, (and we are excited to see the new talent) I would encourage other second level students (5th & 6th years) to check out the events that are happening during this academic year at the Moylish campus, including the Open Days and The Richard Harris International Film Festival in October (which the students and staff produce the now acclaimed Live Streamed Awards Show), and the student showcase which will take place in the spring of 2020.

Cast and Crew of the short film, ‘Detainment’ which won the overall award at the Richard Harris International Film Festival and went on to be shortlisted for the Academy Awards 2019.

Also keep an eye on the programme facebook page for info on the guest lectures and workshops which some are open to the public as well as current students.

If you have further questions about the Creative Broadcast & Film Production Programme then feel free to drop an email to film@lit.ie or contact me on simon.mcguire@lit.ie

Further updates on events will be posted here also in the coming weeks.

BlackMagic have decided to release the details of the 6K version of their Pocket Cinema Camera.

I would wonder if all those who are still on the waiting list for a 4K Version to arrive will they be changing their orders.

There are some very nice tech advancements…

KEY FEATURES

  • Active Canon EF Mount
  • Super 35-Sized HDR Sensor
  • Record 6K 6144 x 3456 up to 50 fps
  • Dual Native 400 & 3200 ISO to 25,600

However I question this one and it’s target market. I would assume the quality is superb but with a tag of over $2500 (Irish price would be more I would say), this camera now falls into a very saturated price category.

Depending on the user and their requirements for filming, is there a need from clients for 6K (at this time)? Does the client have 6K playback to maximize the viewing experience of the package?

Also with other 4K cameras, including the previous pocket cam (pictured above next to the 6k) would this be the better buy? I do however like the idea of all the EF glass now compatible with the BlackMagic pocket though, (long over due).

Here is a breakdown from Newsshooter.com which gives all the details
