Lensmen Video Interns
Lensmen Video Production unit takes several interns a year to help gain experience in photography, video and digital marketing. As part of his course, Keelan came from NUIG to gain experience in film and videography. We’re delighted he enjoyed his time with us and was a great team asset!
My name is Keelan, and I am a National University of Ireland Galway (NUIG) student. I have just completed an 8-week video internship at Lensmen Photography and Video Production in the North Strand in Dublin City. This video internship was part of my practical work experience for my Bachelor of Arts in Film Studies. My Video internship with Lensmen was in the videography department. During my time with the company in this role, I developed and utilised my skills in filming and editing. I was allowed to film and edit footage for clients and contribute to the company’s active online media platforms. This entailed filming construction sites, videos for the company’s Vimeo account, and stock motion video. The broad range of activities I undertook helped to further my knowledge of videography and allowed me to make a professional showreel of my work. I thoroughly enjoyed working in close quarters with other videographers in a professional environment and have benefited greatly from such connections. I feel I have progressed in both my abilities to capture film and edit it, as well as being able to organise it for marketing/sharing.
My experience working for Lensmen Photography and Video Production was very positive. I am grateful for the opportunity to grow, progress, learn and develop my career before returning for the last year of my university degree.
