I went to derry tech. in 2006 and studied performing arts for a year , it was an interesting coarse and had all the things an actor/singer would love but its pretty unrealistic to depend on full time in my oppinion , i was in numerous produictions throughout my time at that particuler coarse .

in september 2007 i started a national diploma in media studies it was very interesting and exciting , in 1st year i done projects on autuer theory as part of film studies and also post modernism and genre theory  for these projects i concentrated on quentin tarantino , sin city and the war genre .

i also made a documentery in 1st year called fighting weight .

in 2nd year i enjoyed such projects as pitting a small time company up against a big company when i put  bbc films up against universal pictures , and the commitments compared to grease .  we also studied the big media moguls like disney , warner and news corperation , i studied photography also doing a assignment on horses and ponies and also annie leivivich .

in them years i did presentations on drugs and violance in films and also in wrestling.  

i made a couple of showreels also to show an overview of my interests and work .

then i started a HND in media studies in 2009  which also was a very fullfilling experience it was similar to the n.d. i did previously but more in depth i did many film reviews as part of contextual studies including phycho by alfred hitchcock also i made presentations on celebrity culture using my interest in wrestling as help when i chose hulk hogan as my topic depicting his popularity in wrestling , films and reality tv.

also for another presentation i compared the world of D.C.  universe with marvel enterprises  concentrating on batman and the ultimate avengers .

i have made numerous short films and documenteries in my years in media , i fell sick in the middle of my 2nd and final year of my HND so i have to take time out for now but i plan on returning to finnish my media hnd some time in the near future .
