Money, Money,… |Camera is Rolling | VTOS Students are in Action


The First 30 minutes of footage for 5 minut movie  “Money, Money” was shot today.

The project is managed and produced by the students of the Vocational Training Opportunities Scheme – VTOS in Galway.  Every one of this year students of Film and Television Production 5M5158 at VTOS is working on a unique movie project. The production teams for each movie has been created from the students of the course themselves. Watch this page to find out more about VTOS production. I have my own production scheduled to be success of the year!!!

I’m a student of the Film and Television Production at VTOS 2015/16. This course introduces participants to the art of film making with a practical ‘hands-on’ approach allowing the students to realize their creative potential. Each student gets the opportunity to produce, direct and edit their own film.

The Vocational Training Opportunities Scheme is an educational opportunities scheme for unemployed persons which is funded by the Department of Education and Science with assistance from the European Social Fund. The Scheme is operated through the Education and Training Boards and provides a special range of courses designed to meet the education and training needs of unemployed people.

The aims of the scheme are:

  • to give unemployed people education and training opportunities which will develop their employability
  • to prepare people to go into paid employment or on to further opportunities leading to paid employment

On Dec 1st, 2014 UNESCO Director-General, Ms Irina Bokova announced that Galway has been designated a UNESCO City Of Film. Under the UNESCO Creative Cities Network, Galway is now one of only five cities in the world to achieve this much sought-after status. Galway  joins  Sydney, Australia and Galway’s twin city of Bradford in the UK as a designated City of Film. This is a permanent global designation. This status brings the highest internationally recognised standard of excellence in  the creative industries to Galway. The title of Creative City of Film also includes membership of UNESCO’s Creative Cities Network.
