Waterford Institute of Technology and Nemeton TV
Three graduates from the Waterford Institute of Technology and Nemeton TV Higher Diploma in Arts in Television Production have attained places on the new TG4 and Údarás na Gaeltachta Launch Media Training Development Scheme.

The TG4 and Údáras na Gaeltachta scheme supports independent production companies in developing the skills of an emerging generation of Irish speakers in the media sector.  Trainees will receive practical experience and expertise in specific skills areas as Editors, Directors, Researchers, Assistant Producers and Production Development Staff.  

The Media Training Development Scheme launched by Richard Bruton TD, Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment with Seán Kyne TD, Chief Whip and Minister of State for Gaeilge, the Gaeltacht and the Islands on July 12th in the Galmont Hotel during the Galway Film Fleadh.

The Scheme was launched by Richard Bruton TD, Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment with Seán Kyne TD, Chief Whip and Minister of State for Gaeilge, the Gaeltacht and the Islands on July 12th in the Galmont Hotel during the Galway Film Fleadh.

Of the WIT gradutaes, Eannaí O’Sullivan from Cork will be mentored by An Rinn based Red Shoe Productions, the award-winning makers of Fleadh Cheoil and Gradam Ceoil TG4. While on the Higher Diploma in Television Production, O’Sullivan wrote and directed Cara Nó Namhaid, a quirky short drama about two new roommates. She was placed to begin her media career as a Production Trainee on Macalla Teo's locally produced feature film Mo Ghrá Buan

Eannaí says of her experience on the WIT postgraduate course:

“Learning and being involved in every aspect of the making of a student film really helped me understand what kind of work I saw myself in and gifted me with memorable experiences.”

Oisín Mistéil from Dublin graduated from the Higher Diploma in Television Production in 2018 with his short drama Amach an Sliabh. It was nominated for Best Irish Language Production at the Student Media Awards 2019 and broadcast on TG4 as part of the Céad Seans Series. Mistéil then began working in the editing department of Ros na Rún. He went on to work with Magamedia in Galway, producers of the award winning drama Corp + Anam and documentary series Ceolchuairt

Speaking on the benefits of the WIT course, Oisín said:

“The Nemeton TV postgraduate course gave me the opportunity to hone my skills and gain experience in every step of the production process, from writing and storytelling, to producing, filming, editing and marketing”.

Andrew O’Leary from Cork has just finished the WIT Higher Diploma in Television Production and now joins Nemeton TV as a trainnee in Outside Broadcasting Skills. While on the postgraduate course, O’Leary directed and edited Guth An Cheoil, a heart-warming documentary about music therapy and he also filmed the War of Independence documentary Díoltas. He also gained invaluable practical experience working on the Nemeton TV Outside Broadcasts.

The WIT and Nementon TV HDip Arts in TV Production is currently accepting applications for Sept 2019 (email traenail@nemeton.ie for queries).
