Well in school you should try do a practical subject and get used to working with your hands. Physics is another subject that would be of benefit. It would help in the theory exams that you complete after each of the off the job training modules.

Catherine O’Donnell – Motion Graphics Editor

Why did you chose to study Creative MultiMedia in LIT Clonmel?

I didn’t plan to study Creative Multimedia, Through the CAO I got a place in LIT Clonmel’s Animation course, but it didn’t run that year so I was offered a place on Creative Multimedia instead. Once I saw what modules were on offer for the course, I saw that it had a great variety of module’s I was interested in studying. I think it has worked out for the best because Creative Multimedia gave me a wider choice of career paths to take. Then being able to specialise in Motion Design in 4th year allowed me to have a stronger portfolio.

What did you do after you completed your studies?

After taking the summer off after my degree, I looked for work as a Motion Graphics designer, I interviewed with the vStream for different departments and found an ideal Internship position in Visual in the field of work I was interested in doing in vStream’s video production company, Visual.

What are you working on at the moment?

I have since completed my internship with Visual and I have since continued to work with the company.

What did your time at LIT prepare you for your working career?

I learned so much during my time in LIT from all the lecturers and the projects we were given allowed me to learn and build up my portfolio, but there is a lot to the course, not just the creative modules, it prepared us for the workplace by teaching us how to best work together as a team during many team projects and teamwork modules. Project management has also been a great help now that I’m working and the opportunity to do work placement gave me a great insight into the career path I had chosen, to test the waters to see if it was actually something I wanted to pursue before graduating.
