Lensmen Video Interns
Lensmen Video Production unit take 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 he was a great asset to the team!
My name is Keelan and I am a student at the National University of Ireland Galway (NUIG). I have just completed an 8-weeks video internship at Lensmen Photography and Video Production in the North Strand in Dublin City. This video internship served as part of my practical work experience for my Bachelor of Arts in Film Studies Degree. 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 afforded opportunities to film and edit footage for clients as well as contributing to the company’s very active online media platforms. This entailed tasks such as filming construction sites, filming videos for the company’s Vimeo account and shooting stock motion video. The broad range of activities I undertook helped to further my knowledge of videography and afforded me with the chance 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 a very positive one and I am grateful for the opportunity to grow, progress, learn and develop my career before returning for the last year of my university degree.
