Hi, my name is Célem.
I am a filmmaker & photographer with a deep passion for visual storytelling.
I grew up with storytelling at the front and centre of my childhood.
A good story is the driving force behind good communication motivated my dedication towards film and in turn directed my interest towards brand communication through visual storytelling.
I graduated with a degree in Multimedia Production, receiving all distinctions from Waterford College of Further Education.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts honours degree in Film & Screen Media with Economics from University College Cork.
I was awarded two scholarships during this degree.
I was awarded a place on the first Student Business Incubator Program in my university. successfully completing an intensive entrepreneurship program over three months.
I was also awarded a place within the prestigious Lord Puttnam Scholarship Program. David Puttnam is a legendary film producer, best known for producing ‘Chariots of Fire’ & ‘The Killing Fields’. His films have won 10 Oscars, 13 Golden Globes, 31 Baftas, 9 Emmys, 4 David di Donatellos and the Palme D’Or at Cannes.
I was keen to expand my knowledge of storytelling in different disciplines, so I studied TV Production, Marketing, Public Relations, Radio & Podcasting modules in Leeds Trinity University in the UK for one year.
I discovered that film as a medium of expression enables the storyteller to take the audience on a journey of discovery and understanding, with complex stories and scenarios.
In 2017 I started a media company and began producing Wedding Films, Fashion Brand Films, Social Media Videos and Journalism Videos.
Social Media has refocused towards video content over images in recent years.
Brands are now adapting to this new demand in a fast paced and growing virtual world.
