This past Tuesday the second year students of IADT showed their work as an event Film as Art. It was organised by 2nd year film and television students Dani Wall, Sinead Doran, Mia Ferguson and Sean Bradford and showed the students’  work at the Drawing Room in Dun Laoghaire. In this writer’s opinion, every student displayed creativity in their projects and despite sacrificing sleep and hobbies to perfect their craft, show fun and interesting material would appeal the IFI. Courtesy of the IADT students, allow yours truly to present some of the material presented at the exhibition to set a virtual rendition of the gallery for the rest of you readers.

  1. Thank you very much for the write up Diarmuid. I think the link for James Cullotys is incorrect. I can forward you the link to his film as art if you would like.
