17 June 2013: There was a full house for the 2013 School of Media Graduate Screening of dramas, documentaries and radio features.

Students, lecturers, actors in the dramas and participants in the documentaries were in attendance along with relatives and friends of the students whose work was on display.

President of DIT, Prof Brian Norton, welcomed everyone to the screening and said it was an “opportunity to celebrate the outstanding work of our students, both audio and visual, and an event we look forward to each year.”

He also paid tribute to Mick Muldoon and Brendan Bourke, whose partner Liz was in attendance at the screening.

“The sudden and unexpected loss of two such talented and versatile colleagues has left its mark on everyone,” he said, mentioning both men’s legacy of work and their dedication to teaching.

President Norton dedicated the night’s screening to their memory.

Guest of honour was David Crean, Commissioning Executive, Drama in RTE. A graduate of DIT, David has worked in the UK for many years as a director/producer and on his return to Ireland has worked on shows such as Prosperity, Raw and Love Hate.

David congratulated the students on their achievements and said one of the most crucial things he had learnt was how to successfully collaborate in a team and that it was crucial to know how to add value to a team.

He also encouraged graduates to make the most of opportunities that came their way.

“Your 20s will go by really quickly so don’t hang about – grab a chance when it comes your way,” he said.

The night’s screening included Capturing Our Capital, a humorous documentary that observed Dubliners using disposable cameras left in public areas.
