Each year our Transition Year students enjoy the experience of producing a cinema advertisement based on the theme of anti-litter. This project is run in conjunction with Roscommon County Council. It affords students the opportunity to generate ideas, experience script writing, costume design, characterisation and all other aspects of film production. Filming is carried out by the New Media Institute who are based in Kildare. They allow students to use the microphones, cameras and all of the equipment necessary for filming. This is an excellent opportunity for them to gain insight into what it is like to be involved in film production both on and off screen.
Our students have been very successful in this competition, with last years production winning the prize for best costumes.
