The webinar will consist of a panel of highly experienced assistant editors as well as an editor who made the transition from assistant editor in recent years and this panel will discuss the typical workflows for TV drama and film, the importance of the assistant editor in the post production pipeline and the skills and knowledge required for the job.

Wired FM is hosting the inaugural Limerick Media and Arts Conference online on August 25 and 26, 2021.

LMAC is a free event aimed at young Irish broadcasters, artists, content creators, film makers and journalists to discuss creativity, criticism, production and innovation in media and arts. We will also address some of the challenges facing media/arts students and graduates today.

The conference will take the form of several panel discussions, with some workshops and talks littered throughout the two days. Panels will take place over Zoom (webinar style) and will be moderated by an industry professional. The panels will be just under and an hour in length.

The event kicks off with a plenary session at 2pm on Wednesday 25, August. Rob Quicke (Co-Founder, World College Radio Day (Professor, William Paterson University, NJ, USA)), Paula Healy (Station Manager Flirt FM 101.3/Irish Student Radio Network/Craol), Diarmuid McIntyre (HearSay Audio Festival/Grey Heron Media) and others will discuss student media, and the importance of getting involved.

This will be followed by a unique multi-camera online workshop with one of Ireland’s most celebrated DJ’s Aoife Nic Canna. The event will be streamed live from Melody in Limerick and is an absolute must for any burgeoning DJ. Following that, we have a very unique event, Making it in America, with Malachy Browne and some very well-known Irish journalists based in the US. We’re very excited about this one, keep tuned to our socials for updates

Our panel discussions run from 11-4pm Thursday, 26 August.

TikTok star Lauren Whelan will accompany Craig Houlden from the Anfield Agenda YouTube channel. Instagram content creator Clóda Scanlon (orangeobviously) and up-and-coming sports pundit Jay Daly (The United Stand) will complete the Millennial Media panel.

Nessa McGann will moderate the panel discussion Challenging Current Affairs Programming. She will be joined by The Irish Mirror’s Ciara Phelan, Virgin Media’s Rob O’Hanrahan, NewsTalk’s Andrew Lowth and The Irish Examiner’s Aoife Moore to offer their expertise.

Where Are The Critics?: The Role of the Critic in 2021Sunday Times journalist Cristín Leach will talk to well-known and respected critic Zara Hedderman, Dave Hanratty of the No Encore Podcast, freelance writer Alannah Hopkin, and CEO of Blinder Films Katie Holly.

Journalist Aoife Barry (The Explainer/Journal.ie and Get Around To It Podcast (host/producer) will join Martin Beanz Warde of The HazBeanz Show,  Fur Coat No Nickers’ Sophie La Touche and HeadStuff’s Conor Reid to discuss all things Podcasting. This panel is moderated by Diarmuid McIntyre.

The conference will come to a close with two really special events. Well-known funny man Owen Colgan (Hardy Bucks/RTE’s Around the Fire) will be the focus of a Questions and Answer’s session where students can pick his brain about the fantastic range of projects he has been involved in over the years, from stand-up to acting, from guerrilla film-making to working for RTE, and larger, big budgeted productions. 

The film maker and musician Nick Kelly will present an hour long workshop on directing. Nick has been a prolific short film maker for several years, and has been shortlisted for an Oscar. He released his full length feature The Drummer and the Keeper in 2017, and he had a rewarding fifteen year career directing high profile advertisements. He is also the former front man with The Fat Lady Sings and is an accomplished and successful solo musician. We feel incredibly lucky to have Nick on board, his SEE:HEAR Stage show was a massive influence on the team here at Wired FM.

We put this event together to revitalise and invigorate those involved in college media – after what has been a very challenging 18 months.

We did so in a bid to look ahead to the new college year with enthusiasm and optimism.

Tickets are free, and available here

Delighted to have achieved the Avid Media Composer Instructor Certification for 2021 last week.
As part of the Creative Technologies programmes at Limerick School of Art & Design, LIT, we hope to be offering students the opportunity to take the Avid User Certification 101 course in the coming 2021/2022 academic year.

Avid Media Composer is a film and video editing software application or non-linear editing system (NLE) developed by Avid Technology. Initially released in 1989 on Macintosh II as an offline editing system, the application has since evolved to allow for both offline and online editing, including uncompressed standard definition (SD), high definition (HD), 2K and 4K editing and finishing. Since the 1990s, Media Composer has been the dominant non-linear editing system in the film and television industry, first on Macintosh and later on Windows.
