Fresh Film Success...

fresh film

Coláiste Chiaráin's fifth year students, Celine McInerney and Liam O'Hanlon had great success with their film, 'Who are we?', at the Fresh Film Festival heats in the Belltable Arts Centre last Tuesday 7th March. 'Who are we?' explores the life of a creative person and reflects on the moments in life with inspire artistically minded people.  The competition on the day was very tough, so we are extremely proud that their film was one of 60 selected out of 400 entries to progress in the senior category. The talented duo have now proceeded to the final stage of the competition which will take place on March 30th. We wish them the very best of luck.

Seán facilitated a full days workshop in which he shared a number of his own news pieces. Students were able to learn from the master himself as he talked the group through the process of video journalism, using a number of his pieces for RTÉ as examples. Highlights of the day included footage from the recent US presidential election which generated great interest from Seán young adult audience. A huge thanks to Seán for such an enjoyable day.
