Media Night of Excellence

 Media Night of Excellence 2019

​​
On Tuesday 5 November, students, parents, friends and College staff gathered to view the high-quality productions of Year 9, 10, 11 and 12 Media students.

The library, which was converted into a cinema, provided an intimate atmosphere for all to take in the many student stories that had come to life on the big screen.

As film teachers, Ms O'Malley and I experience the excitement of student's ideas and hard work culminate into shared laughter, wonder and meaningful messages that our student's media productions delivered.

Watching the faces of the audience, illuminated by the light of the big screen, I knew they had all been transported into another world and taken on a journey that each students film provided.

It was a pleasure to witness Mr Noonan present the Ken Lee Award for Outstanding Achievement in Media to Year 12 student, Carina Serong in recognition for her hard work and high academic success in Film Television and New Media. We also recognise Carina for being selected as one of the final 18 student films for the Bond University Film & Television Awards (BUFTA). You are able to watch her moving documentary Mi Chiamo Maria, Mi Chiamo about her Nona by this link https://www.bufta.com.au/peoples-choice/ and you are also able to vote for Carina in the BUFTA People's Choice Award via this link as well.

It must be noted that with each student production, the skills that were required to bring it to fusion were more for than just pointing and shooting a camera. The students had to use creative thinking in order to come up with engaging production ideas, critical thinking to problem solve, have plan B, C & sometimes D in case things went wrong on the day of filming. They had to collaborate and communicate with one another, utilizing personal and social skills plus master ICT capabilities to edit and produce a final production. The skills and knowledge that media students gain is what we call 21st-century skills. These are the skills and attributes students need to prepare them for higher education, work and engagement in a complex and rapidly changing world.

Ms O'Malley and I are passionate media teachers who see the passion reflected within our students.

Media Night was a wonderful success and we thank our students for their dedication and hard work, their family and friends for acting, driving them around and supporting them and finally, for Mr Noonan for supporting Media and the Arts in the College.

One last thing, to our Year 12 film students, thank you for the pleasure of teaching you, we have seen you grow up and mature, we will miss you, however, know no matter what path you take, you all have the potential to achieve and make your own success. Take care and God Bless.
