Creative Media Students Deliver Filmic Delights

Creative Media Students Deliver Filmic Delights

Last Friday morning at the Nerve Centre saw an influx of no budget filmic delights, courtesy of the students in the Nerve Centre’s Creative Media Class. The offbeat line-up of short films had such diverse topics ranging from a Chris Morris styled satirical news programme (which of course descends into chaos), to a Bear Grylss parody, amateur puppetry (involving simians forming their own band) to a documentary on Lough Swilly lifeboats, all of which impressed and charmed the audience with their inventiveness.

The event kicked off at 11am and the excitable audience, which mostly comprised of the students family and friends, took their seats amidst the nervous filmmakers who then breathed a huge sigh of relief when laughter and applause broke out. Grinning from the sidelines were tutors John Deery and Richard Taylor who carefully and intensely observed each film, but soon found themselves giving into the same enjoyment of the audience.

These short films serve as a reminder that filmmakers need not be paralysed by budget and production design but that a clever idea well done can charm an audience no matter how much money is thrown behind it. Long may their work prosper.
