Steve Wanted To…
Learn New Skills

Steven Sheehy attended our *Hybrid Internships program in May 2013. Coming from a creative film making background, Steve tells us about his experience…

I was one of the ten participants in Corkscrew’s Exeter program in May 2013. Since finishing with Corkscrew, I was quickly picked up for crew positions with HBO’s “Game Of Thrones”, as well as film productions with Universal and Showtime. This led onto my current position with a startup company ‘ExtrasIreland’, who provide background artistes to Film, TV and Commercial productions around Ireland.

I was able to use my skills that I developed from the Corkscrew program to drive the business forward in the right direction.

I was able to use my skills that I developed from the Corkscrew program to drive the business forward in the right direction. This included my knowledge and training in web design, social media strategies, idea generation, SEO and creative thinking. During my time in Corkscrew I also worked on a mobile app for smart phones which I am still developing at this time. It was a highly valuable experience and highly recommended for anyone seeking work in the creative industry or with passion for new ideas.
