I am a media student in Acadamh na hOllscoilaíochta Gaeilge based in Carraroe which is a branch of NUIGalway. I am studying Na Dana Cumarsáid! As part of the course I learn about Radio,Television/Film and Journalism through irish. I’m in my second year of a four year degree and next year I will begin my 9 month placement in TG4 ( excitinggg eeeep).
As a media student we get to do a ton of practical stuff with cameras and with microphones and studio time. I’ve had 12 week radio programme as Gaeilge on Flirt Fm, where I learned how to present and produce a radio show with a team. I mainly did presenting and I got to interview a lot of cool people! So far this has been my favourite module!
Other modueles have included script writing, producing a film, editing sound and video, presenting skills in front of the camera, learning HTML and Gimp.
I plan to write about some of the stuff I’m working on and stuff that I have completed as part of my course !
