AGE AT AWARD: 17
Glasgow born and bred Eoghainn has wanted to be a film director for as long as he can remember. As a child he watched film constantly, not just for the entertainment, but to observe and study it as an art-form. He would study the lighting, camera angles and all the other elements that created mood and drove the story.
Eoghainn writes his own short film scripts, but his real passion is in the visual side of storytelling. While at school he studied art and media studies and stood out as someone who had an intuitive understanding of the subject. Long-term, Eoghainn wants his unique artistic vision to have an impact on Scottish film in the future, and he has already shown that he has the talent, passion and commitment to achieve his goal.
He has been given an opportunity to start on that journey by gaining a place on the Digital Film-making Course at the SAE Institute in Glasgow.
How the Award Helped
The Dewar Arts Award will contribute towards Eoghainn’s costs to attend the SAE Institute.
Since the Award
At the end of the course, Eoghainn knew that his real interest lies in post-production, that is in editing or computer-based special effects work, and he hopes to pursue a career in this area.
