Not many students can say they spent their summer in the remote south-west part of Ireland working as part of a professional film crew for a television series.
Sixteen students and five faculty lived, worked, and became immersed in the Irish country side while filming a television series called “Groundbreaking”.
Students taking part in this experience were immersed in this hands-on opportunity, taking on roles of professional film and crew teams. These students worked on a professional film set with deadlines, professional actors, wardrobes, challenges, budgets, etc. They lived together, bonded, played games and were able to explore the new scenery they were in.
The picture-perfect views of Ireland were not all they seemed to be when trying to shoot a movie. Rain, wind, and freezing temperatures made for a truly memorable experience where students needed to adapt to their surroundings.
