Introduction of myself- BFI Academy

Hi, My names Ciara Mc Larnon , I am 19 years old and I am from Creggan in Co. Antrim. I have a huge passion for film making and I hope to one day pursue a career in film making specifically in editing. I am a very keen and determined person which is I have decided to apply for the BFI so I can learn from others, improve my skills, gain experience and network with others. Recently I have been very lucky enough to gain a place with the British Film Institute Academy and through this I will be achieving the Silver Arts Award. I want to work in the film Industry because its something I love to do. When I was younger I absolutley loved watching films and not much else interested me, I then decided to take on Moving Image Art as a GCSE which is where I found my love for filming. I especially loved the editing side of film making as it allowed me to be visually creative which I absolutley love. Since I found my passion for filmmaking I have been determined in improving my skills and gaining as much experience possible ever since.
