Cillian Brennan 

BA [Hons] New Media Studies

Over the span of 4 years in New Media Studies working theoretically and practically, my main strengths are based in writing, editing and photography. I thoroughly enjoy abstract art, analysing works of others and contributing my own. Feminist theory was an angle I dissected within many projects for New Media Studies and I feel like I have a deep understanding of its relevance and importance. Through years of practising voice over and editing softwares, I am competent at creating podcasts, blogs and video essays.

Journalism Piece

My final semester journalism project was an investigative piece on the subject of mental health during the pandemic. The angle within the article is based around how meditation and contemplative practices were an underrated coping mechanism that was used as a resort for those struggling during lockdown. I interviewed 4 individuals for this project ranging from a tarot card reader to a yoga specialist.
