Two very successful training classes run in March by Cormac and Micheal. Don't take our word for it, this is what our lovely students had to say about the course:
"Great intro to iMovies. Very clear instruction, very relaxed atmosphere" ...
"Very well run with very friendly and helpful instructors. Taught us how to make the best use of equipment and software we already have" ...
"Course ran very smoothly. Was very easy to understand what instructors were talking about" ...
"For the first time I got to make my own movie from nothing. iMovie is awesome" ..
"I can make films - yay!"... (My own personal favourite)
"we had movies made and up on YouTube by the end of the workshop" ...
"I would love some more!" ...
"I liked the course. The evident experience of both Cormac and Michael and their keen and informal attitude to teaching. I found them both knowledgeable and helpful." ...
"I loved the fact that we left having actually made a video."
We have been asked to develop a video production training programme by NUI Galway as part of their Explore/Innovation Student/Staff collaboration initiative. This course will focus on all aspects of video making, and after just one day with us, students will be able to shoot, edit and upload professional looking video for the web.
Merry Yo Yos to all our customers, suppliers and all our friends that helped make 2011 our best year ever. As for 2012, 'let's hope it's a good one, without any tears' (John Lennon).
From all at Staunton Media ... Feliz Navidad ..
Been extremely busy around here, and unfortunately the poor ole website is feeling a little neglected. Seeing that we are on sound duties tonight for Dead Cat Bounce in the College Bar, we thought you might like to see what they are about. Check out their take on Rugby.
New Italian Cafe opened up this week in Augustine St. Il Vicolo (The Lane) serving real Italian coffee and authentic Italian pastas, salads and other tasty treats. Staunton Media will be providing the playlists to soundtrack the vibe.
All this weekend Il Vicolo will be serving Italian Coffees for just 99c, if you tell them Cormac sent you.
Il Vicolo ... Look for the V

Every now and then we do a bit of work for 'charridy' mate, and the Samaritans, well they're one of the best charity organizations out there. So here's the video we put together of their Flash Mob on the streets of Galway ... Not looking for money, just raising awareness.
Please do pass on, you never know who needs the Samaritans most.
After a lot of filming and recording over the last few weeks, we now have to edit and produce it all ... over 100GB's worth!
