24 Aug 2021 : News Desk
WIT and Nemeton TV.
There is good news for anyone interested in getting that vital start to working in the television and media industries.

The award-winning Higher Diploma in Arts in Television and Media Production commences again in October 2021 with an exciting and innovative blend of practical workshops and online classes delivered through block-release. The seven-month post-graduate course is now uniquely tailored to the needs of students and is particularly suited to those who wish to develop their skills while also working.

The Údáras na Gaeltachta supported course is highly regarded in the media sector and has an excellent employment record. Graduates go on to work in TG4, RTÉ, the BBC and in top companies such as Tyrone Productions, Nemeton TV, Independent Pictures and Magamedia.

Graduates from this year are already working in the industry in key editing, production and directing roles,said Course Leader Dr. Moira Sweeney.

Helena Keane, who has worked on Ros na Rún and Seal le Dáithí, added: I had no media experience at the start of the year, but the emphasis on practical work meant I gained enough hands-on experience to set me up for working in the industry right after the course.” 

Photographer and filmmaker, John Foley, has not stopped working since he completed the course. "Using the film production and editing skills that I learned on the Higher Diploma in TV and Media allowed me to set myself up as a Digital Content Creator” he said. 

Other alumni from the course include producer Rebecca Speer (David Brophy’s Choir of Ages, Cleas Act), assistant director Aoife Doyle (Cursed, Into the Badlands), producer Edel Fox (Noel Hill – Aisling Gearr, Gradaim Cheoil), and editor Alan Devitt (Dr. Eva’s Portuguese Adventure, Gogglebox). 

 “The industry-focused nature of the postgraduate course attracts participants from all over Ireland who are keen to avail of practical workshops, which are led by film, television and radio professionals with extensive experience,” Moira continued.  

A key focus on the course are the masterclasses presented by award-winning filmmakers, such as producer Paddy Hayes (Rúbai, Eipic), writer Darach Mac Con Iomaire (Corp + Anam, Red Rock), and director Paula Kehoe (Deargdhúil – Anatomy of Passion and Hiroshima, My Bright Love). 

The resulting high-quality dramas and documentaries produced on the course are regularly broadcast on TG4’s series Céad Seans | First Chance and they also achieve recognition at festivals around Ireland. 

“And, it has been a record year for the Higher Diploma at the National Student Media Awards 2021 with twelve nominations and three awards across four categories for the students’ imaginative and compelling films,” Moira said.

There will be a Virtual Open Session to answer any questions on August 26th from 6.30-7.30pm.
