The Southern Regional College Banbridge campus recently welcomed Jane Kelly from Big Mountain Productions.

Big Mountain Productions is one of the most innovative content companies in the UK and Ireland.

They specialise in reality and unscripted formats for broadcasters and all platforms.

Some of their current works are Genealogy Roadshow, The Tenements and The Big House and companies they have been involved with recently include RTE, TG4, TV3, BBC and Sky in the UK. An example of their recent work is Dúshlán 1881.

Jane also discussed the Big Mountain Company and helped educate the students further on the world of film and TV.

She provided information on placement opportunities within the company, how students could apply to become a part of the team and the type of skills that will get them noticed.

All of the students thoroughly enjoyed the presentation and felt like they had a better understanding of what would be required of them in a business environment such as Big Mountain Productions.

To find out more about this course and others available, why not go along to the SRC Banbridge open day.

It will be taking place on Tuesday March 10. visit www.src.ac.uk or phone 03001231223 for further information.
