I had family members who worked on film and TV and I’ve always been fascinated by what they did. I am particularly fascinated by sound.
When I was fourteen I created my first YouTube channel. To date I have uploaded 57 videos on my channel Neev Unicorns. The videos cover all kinds of things – whatever makes me curious at the time. I have gone to the YouTube Convention – YouTube connect, the annual international convention of YouTube bloggers for the past five years. I love meeting other bloggers but what I really want is to be is a panelist at the convention. I have been applying for the past few years and hope to be successful in the near future.
I am passionate and motivated. Working in this creative field excites me and I am looking to develop and grow my skills over my career.
My project is a soundtrack street tour of Dublin in 1963 when the Beatles came to play here. It is a piece of work I did for the 5 lamps festival as part of my diploma. My street tour and the work of other colleagues (3 of us were working on different stories set in Dublin in 1963) were featured on an RTE TV Nationwide report which was cool.
I had to write the script, chose the voice, work out how to get the sounds right (including Foley work which is my favorite!). I recorded and edited it at college. It took me about 4 weeks to create it.
This project is part of the portfolio I am building up to demonstrate my abilities in sound production.
The inspiration for this project was based on a group decisions and mutual interests in the topic.
As my career progresses, I would love to work on movies as part of a sound design team. Foley work is my particular area of interest. This is the reproduction of everyday sound effects added to films. I would love to also build my YouTube channel, ideally receiving some income for this as my following grows.
I am extremely passionate and dedicated to this field and would love to gain work experience or work placements in many different organizations. I hope to gain practical experience to further my skills and talents.
