As a Year 11 student, I have studied Media since Year 9 and plan to continue in Year 12. I was part of a student team that produced ‘Bollywood Zombies,’ our major film production in 2010. I learned about the full process of creating a film, from pre-production to post-production. During the year, we produce short films for competitions such as the ACMI annual ‘Screen It!’ film contest. I have begun planning for my major short film project I will be entering in next year’s ACMI ‘VCE Season of Excellence Top Screen’ contest. I have used industry-standard equipment to produce high-quality photographs, films and podcasts – just like the professionals! I have a passion for the media industry and hope to get a career in film, television and/or radio.
