2018 has been a great year for the students of Waterford Institute of Technology’s Higher Diploma in Television and Digital Media Production. Based at Nemeton TV in Gaeltacht na nDéise in Co Waterford, the students will be showing an array of imaginative dramas and documentaries at this year’s Strings and Things Festival.
Following in the footsteps of former graduates of the course, this years young group of filmmakers will also hope to win awards and have their work broadcast on TV and screened at some of Ireland’s best film festivals. And most importantly, they can look forward to employment in a vibrant industry that needs their skill set. The class of 2017 are working in production companies around the country as well as in the related digital media industries.
