Liam Hyland: Cinematic-View

Isabel Copeland, Editor in Chief

Sitting in video production class junior year, senior Liam Hyland got a look into what he wanted his future career to look like.
Hyland plans on attending Columbia College Chicago and is going to study film and television.
“I always wanted to move away, and I thought a big city would be fun,” Hyland said. “I have family that lives up there.”
Hyland learns a lot of skills from videos and articles he watches and reads in his free time.
“When I first got into [film and television], I started off by watching a lot of YouTube explaining how films are made,” Hyland said.
Being a part of Miege Weekly has taught Hyland very important lessons about this type of industry.
“It has shown me that film and collaboration are really fun to work on,” Hyland said. “And in certain projects, it is cool to see the work come to life.”
Editing is not the only thing that Hyland does for Miege Weekly. He also likes to think outside of the box to get different shots for segments.
“I always watched YouTube videos of drone clips, and I always thought they were really cool and how you can use a drone to get really interesting shots that you can’t get from just a regular camera,” Hyland said.
One of Hyland’s favorite parts about what he does is getting to put something together and share his own story, inspiring him to pursue his future goals.
“My dream job would be a camera operator for a big TV show or movie,” Hyland said.
