Blaine Rennicks, a 4th year student on the BA (Hons) in Video & Film Production has won an internal DKIT competition to spend 2 weeks on the set of the new Die Hard film, shooting this summer in locations across Europe. Blaine will join John Moore as the director’s intern on the set of the film in Budapest for 2 weeks from June 18th to July 2nd. John Moore, native of Dundalk, is director of Hollywood blockbusters such as Max Payne, The Omen & Behind Enemy Lines.
The selection process for the internship called for the students to submit a short showreel of their work thus far, along with an essay that examined the issue of political complacency and the spread of social media. John was very impressed by the standard of the showreels submitted by the students. The shortlisted students were then required to participate in a Skype interview, before Blaine was chosen as the winner.
