As stated before in a previous post, I have luckily re-discovered many old projects from previous years in college, hidden on hard-drives. Unfortunately, I have never found anything (apart from photos) from my time on work placement with Cavan Institute in the City College of Plymouth, UK, back in February/ March 2009. Strange, considering as part of a work at the Reprographics department in City College of Plymouth, we shot hours of footage of the city of Plymouth itself, our experience during our many activities, and footage shot for our own leisure – with the intention of using that footage in future projects back home. A lot of footage, and yet I can find none of it – sad times.
Luckily, however, I happened upon meeting one of the students from that placement who since found a compilation/ promo video which was made using some of the footage we shot those 2 weeks. Its only a fraction of what we shot, but its still great to have something to look back on. Myself and two other Cavan Institute Multimedia students from that placement, Padraig Farrelly and Declan Brady, shot all the footage from the video – while Padraig and Declan edited it together. Having made a copy of the video, I changed the music on the video to royalty free music from Kevin MacLeod so there wont be any copyright issues with YouTube in the near future. It gives a taster of the great time we had as a group of students in the city of Plymouth those two weeks. Who knows – I might find more of those videos yet!:
If you would like to see more photos from the 2-week work placement (Including pics from the Eden Project, Exeter and Plymouth) – as well as a day-by-day journal of my own experience there (I swear I dont say ‘Dear Diary…’) – then check out my blog on the Plymouth work placement with Cavan Institute (2009) at http://eamonnsplymouth.blogspot.com/
