Bachelor of Arts - Media

"I chose Macquarie because it has one of the best media degrees available with a focus on practical filmmaking subjects. Macquarie allowed me to discover which areas of film production interested me most, giving me a clearer idea of the types of roles I wanted to pursue as a career. Studying at Macquarie also honed my writing skills across a number of genres, which is an invaluable skill to have as a media professional."

"One my most memorable experiences at Macquarie involve shooting the student films I participated in as part of my major. My group mates and I went on a road trip to Orange in the middle of winter to shoot a film that was supposed to look like it was set in the hot outback. It ended up snowing while we there! As the editor of that particular film, I had to get pretty creative with the colour grading to make the footage look the way it was meant to. That was my first taste of video editing, and now I'm doing it for a living."
