It was “Lights, Camera, Action!” on Friday 22nd March in CSN as our TY students put Christopher Nolan to shame with their incredible filmmaking skills. 

Taking part in a day long workshop, the students brainstormed, scripted, lit, and shot a short film about the impact grief can have on a solitary student and how the friends you make in school can help you out of it. 

The facilitator, Emmet Kelly from Burning House Productions, was majorly impressed by the student’s creativity, postive attitudes and enthusiasm. He commented not only on how polite, interested and focused they were- but how competent and assured they became with the equipment after only a few minutes. 

The boys film will now be brought to Emmet’s production company for post -production, to be edited, scored and sent back to the students in a little over a month. We can’t wait to see the finished product! 

If the professionalism and dedication shown by the team today is anything to go by, Cillian Murphy might find himself in competition with some future actors and impressive Irish film workers!

Well done to all involved. It was a fabulous experience for everyone.
