Despite the poor weather this morning, an enthusiastic audience of editors, students and film makers were present at screen 4 of the LightHouse Cinema, Smithsfield in Dublin. The effort was made to have a rare opportunity to listen to film editor Úna Ní Dhongháile in conversation with fellow editor and director Declan McGrath (Reign of Fire, Killinaskully, Fairytale of Kathmandu, Lomax in Éirinn).

Úna shared her knowledge and insights across her impressive editing career in both film and television. An IFTA and BAFTA-winning Editor, Una is currently working with director Kenneth Branagh, and has a long list of credits including All is True, The Crown, Stan and Ollie, BBC mini-series Les Misérables, and Irish feature film Rosie, along with Three Girls, The Missing, Doctor Who and Ripper Street.

Declan McGrath, an accomplished editor himself, quizzed Úna on a number of the high profile projects and how the path to editing was formed for her.  We were told of how she studied Film & Media in D.I.T Aungier Street, were she turned her attention to editing, studying the craft for three years at the National Film and Television School, IADT.

Specially selected clips of her work were screened and talked about in detail, including a opening well paced scene to Les Misérables, a high tension scenes from Three Girls, a comedic timing piece of the Laurel and Hardy biopic Stan & Ollie starring Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly and ending on a sample of the visual effects composition to The Crown. Declan guided Úna to give the editing audience an insight to the complex editing world in which she has mastered over the past 20 years ending with a quick Q&A.

The new series of The Crown will be released in the coming months.

The Academy is delighted to host a special IFTA Women in Focus Masterclass with Ireland’s foremost film and TV Drama Editor Úna Ní Dhonghaíle ACE.

Úna will share her knowledge and insights across her impressive editing career in both film and television. An IFTA and BAFTA-winning Editor, Una has worked with directors such as Kenneth Branagh, in a career spanning 20 years. In that time, her long-list of credits includes All is True, The Crown, Stan and Ollie, BBC mini-series Les Misérables, and Irish feature film Rosie, along with Three Girls, The Missing, Doctor Who and Ripper Street.

Having studied Film & Media in D.I.T Aungier Street, Úna turned her attention to editing, studying the craft for three years at the National Film and Television School, IADT. In 1999, Una brought five of her graduate films to premiere at the Cannes film festival, one of which, Secondhand, won the top prize in the Cinefondation section of the festival.

Over the past 20 years Úna has edited on a variety of projects, from documentaries to film and television drama.

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.

S.

So am taking the plunge and using Avid MC 2019 for the edit of the short film, Blood Brothers, I shot last week.

So far I’m not disappointed. The ingest, sync and binning went off without any problems. Content was all linked without codec issues and there were also no problems when it came to using the Autosync option for the sound.

Yes a few things are gone like the edit selection and trim tools from the Timeline window as well as the option for using the Caps Lock for scrubbing, however all of these are available in the command pallet and are an option for a button on the keyboard as well as the tool menus.

All the fast “burger” menus are gone but again those options are there if you right click the mouse in the bins, timeline or monitor windows.

As I progress through this short film I’ll post more on my experience of using the new Avid 2019 but in the mean time I’m happy with the interface changes.

More soon.

The CAO change of mind deadline has arrived. Just one last mention about the Creative Broadcast & Film Production Level 8 Programme at the Moylish Campus. This programme, under the Limerick School of Art and Design, LIT, offers a wide range of modules that cover many crafts of the Broadcast and Film industries including; camera operation, lighting techniques, sound recording, post-production editing and colour correction and many more.

With many of the lecturers still active in the industry every student gains valuable hands on experience and knowledge that won’t be found in texts or online.

Our graduates are highly skilled and sought after with opportunities for employment in the industry both here and abroad. Graduate Steve O’Carroll is currently based in New York and is editing on a new show called, ‘Battle of the 80’s Super Cars’ starring David Hasselhoff!
