Following on from our highly successful video collaboration with The Interior Design Academy of Ireland, Firstcom were delighted to produce additional promotional video content for The Garden Design Academy of Ireland and the newly-established Photography Academy of Ireland. Operating under the auspices of the Further Learning Group, both the GDAI and the PAI offer a wide range of fully-accredited home-study and classroom-based courses in garden design and photography respectively.
Production for the GDAI commenced on a sunny Friday afternoon in June at the Bloom Garden Festival in Dublin's Phoenix Park where we caught up with Alexandra Hollingsworth, financial strategy consultant turned multi-award-winning garden designer. Fresh from her triumph in RTE's Supergarden 2016, Alexandra explained how enrolling in the postgraduate diploma course with The Garden Design Academy gave her the confidence to pursue her passion for elegant, contemporary garden design.
Filming for the Photography Academy of Ireland brought us to Curracloe beach in Co. Wexford and from there to an impromptu photoshoot in Merrion Square Park where PAI course director Michael Conlon demonstrated some key outdoor lighting setups and techniques. Our work with Further Learning doesn't stop here however with video shoots in London and Dublin scheduled for later this month: watch this space for updates.
