Nemeton TV is one of the leading companies in terms of sports media production here in Ireland producing much of the coverage we see of Rugby and GAA including all of TG4’s coverage of Gaelic games, the Guinness PRO14 and the in-stadium media at Croke Park.
They are also proud of their role in creating production staff for the future and work in association with Waterford Institute of Technology to deliver a Higher Diploma in Television and Digital Media.
The work of ten students was recognized last week as they graduated from the course. Their films have already been screened to great acclaim at festivals throughout the country including Guth Gafa, Kerry Film Festival, and Fingal Film Festival.
And now, following in the accomplished footsteps of previous graduates from the course, their films are due for broadcast on TG4.
Benefiting from a hands-on practical education, this year’s graduates have found work in editing, camera and production in some of the country’s top television production companies.
“The course gave me a really great practical introduction into TV as we were based in a busy live production environment,” said Sarah McCoy now working at NemetonTV.
“I strongly believe that the Higher Diploma in TV was a key factor in my obtaining places on two sought-after trainee programmes,” added Allister Higgens now with Screen Scene and Oireachtas TV.
Popular freeland journalist Cóilín Duffy also completed the course this year.
This Higher Diploma In Television & Digital Media Production is run by the Waterford Institute of Technology in association with NemetonTV and Údarás na Gaeltachta.
The course has gained a high profile in the media industry and has an excellent employment record among course graduates. Films produced on the course have gone on to win Best Irish Language documentary at the National Student Media Awards every year since 2014.
