For the second year running, leaders in local media, events and festivals were invited to the Millennium Theatre to speak to Creative Broadcast & Film Production students on opportunities of work experience.

This valuable session gives the students opportunities to network and decided on what career paths they might like to take during their third year on the programme. In the inaugural year, a number of students availed of working on the Richard Harris International Film Festival as well as the Hear Say Festival where they gained knowledge and connections to industry leaders.

With the RHIFF approaching, the staff and students of the CBFP will once again be producing the acclaimed awards for for the festival. This being the third year for the RHIFF, the awards show will be 10 years old, as it was originally designed for the Limerick Film Festival (LIT Film Festival) back in 2010. As always we are hard working on the design of the awards show and look forward to streaming live on the night as well as recording for later release on the platforms.

More Soon.

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.

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!

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.
