Hear from a graduate about the benefits of a Screenworks membership

“I am a videographer with a photographic and extended reality (XR) practice, thanks to excellent lecturers who encouraged me to push myself in directions I had not even considered possible.”

Paired up with industry mentor Susie Forster, a filmmaker with Byron Bay Multimedia, Joey engaged in a series of mentorship sessions with Susie about working in the film and media industry.

“Susie helped me with my own videography in terms of elevating my work to a professional level and she has really shown me about the rhythm and power of editing,” Joey said.

Following their one-on-one sessions, Susie encouraged Joey to apply for a position on the set of a local feature film. Shortly after, Joey was on set of an exciting production by award-winning filmmaker Darius Devas.
