Three students from a local training initiative in Abbeyfeale are heading to Cinemagic, Dublin Film Academy next week.
Patrick Cronin, from Knocknagoshel, Rhiannon Murray from Newcastle West and Josh Rolfe from Abbeyfeale beat off stiff competition to attend the prestigious film academy organised by the Cinemagic organisation.
Digital Media Technology
The academy takes place from March 27th-31st 2017 in The Lab in Dublin.
The students, who are studying Digital Media Technology as part of their QQI Level 4 Pathway to Employment course with Abbey Heritage Project, entered their own short films in the competition to secure a place.
“The students will get the opportunity to work with professionals on the production of a film, attend masterclasses and get career guidance on different areas of the film and television industry.” said course tutor Claire O’Mahony.
The short film will be made under the guidance of industry professionals, led by filmmaker Patrick Maxwell, Headline Films.
The budding filmmakers will have the chance to develop their talents and earn their credit on the local production which will be screened as part of the Cinemagic Dublin Film Festival in May 2017.
The QQI Level 4 course, which is run by Abbey Heritage Project, is sponsored by Limerick & Clare ETB and is the only full-time adult education course in Abbeyfeale.
