Creative Broadcast & Film Production students and staff of LIT were delighted to present the LSAD Film & Media Showcase19 at the Millennium Theatre. The daylong showcase was a joyous celebration of the ingenuity, creativity, and often times intriguing work created by the students of Creative Broadcast & Film Production. Nigel Mercier dropped in on the day to offer an overview of the role of a broadcast & Film extra. Nigel’s company, “SetExtras” is the leading extras company in the West of Ireland. Providing extras since 2016 for TV Commercials, Music Videos, and local International Films. This was followed by “Scene and Heard”, directed by Eoghan Neff, Lecturer on the Music Technology and Production programme, whose students from the Interactive Audio module demonstrated live interpretations of audio recorded from a selection of short video scenes. The showcase reception kicked off with great anticipation and was created and run by first year Creative Broadcast students which ran in perfect harmony with music put together by students of Music Technology directed by lecturer Mike Gavin. The Screening itself, proudly opened by Mike Fitzpatrick Dean of the School of Arts LSAD and supported by the head of department of design James Greenslade, was a festive celebration of all things sound and vision. The energy and enthusiasm of the audience and the general camaraderie amongst the students was infectious, a glorious night of visual storytelling and jubilant entertainment was had by all. Special thanks to the film & media companies who came on board to celebrate and support the work of these talented filmmakers. It is brilliant to witness the growing film and media industry here in Limerick and their support of emerging film makers through offering work experience and supporting the showcase is remarkable.
