Before, you attended Film School, had you any film experience?
I only had limited experience from when I made shorts with my drama group, so not really comparable with more organised shoots!

Why did you do the course?
As I always had an interest in film I wanted to make sure that the work involved suited. Needless to say I loved it!

Describe your experience on the course?
During the course I received first-hand experience of the many different aspects of film craft, including screenwriting, directing, producing, audio, camera operation and even auditioning actors. It was all a blast and I met and worked with some great, enthusiastic people on two short films.

What are you up to now?
I’m now in second year of the GMIT film and documentary course and working on a few personal projects.

Was the course beneficial in developing your career/creativity?
Very, without the course I don’t know if I would even be doing film at the moment. If you have any interest in films I would recommend trying to make one, you never know, it could be your true calling!
