Testimonials from past students

Our goal for the session was to energise our team ahead of the coming season and inspire them to try new techniques in shooting video. This was put to a stern test within weeks. After Covid-19 struck, we turned to our tour guides to create content for our social channels.

The results have been fantastic. Themed around Ireland both pre- and post-lockdown, the videos have strengthened communication with our audience across all of our social channels. One of the most satisfying aspects has been the amazing contributions of certain team members who wouldn’t have previously been confident shooting video before your training session.”

- Derry Nairn, Vagabond Tours Digital Marketing Executive

"Aileen has delivered a number of workshops on Mobile Video Storytelling for PRII Members, run both as open courses and as part of bespoke in-house training. Feedback has been universally positive with a many participants complimenting Aileen’s clear and practical approach. Her knowledge of the technology and her tips on execution helped demystify the whole area for many. Most importantly everyone was equipped with the skills they needed and a straightforward model to tell their stories via video. As well as enjoying themselves in the process."

- Frank Condon, Development & Research Manager, Public Relations Institute of Ireland

"I recently completed the Mobile Video Storytelling course with Rathdown Media Institute and was amazed at how much I learned in a very short time. While I had done short videos myself before, they were only very basic ones. The tutorials were great and easy to follow and they went through the whole process step-by-step. The tutor, Aileen, provided very detailed feedback afterwards and was great with further tips and tricks to make your videos even more professional. I found the sharing of our video assignments with the rest of the class especially useful, as you picked up other ideas and hints you may not have thought about before. Thanks Aileen!"
