Newry Students’ Web Project Goes Viral

The work of two local students from Newry has been recognised across the world after going viral in the USA and worldwide.

Southern Regional Colleges students Paul Smith and Leanne McCaughtry developed a video project for their Foundation Degree in Interactive Multimedia which has now gone viral worldwide via YouTube. The students created a clay motion video on the topic “The Evolution of mobile phones” which gained worldwide attention in addition to winning the local Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (S.T.E.M) Awards competition. At the last count the video had reached a staggering 14,835 views on YouTube.

After uploading their work to YouTube and some local forums, Paul and Leanne were approached by the American TV/Website company asking permission to publicize the clay-motion video on their website. Following this, CBS News in America snapped up the video and projected the students’ work worldwide.
