“Live on Bowen gave me the chance to work alongside students from all sorts of courses (everything from engineering to IT to business to journalism to media) and a variety of study levels (TAFE to Undergraduate to Postgraduate) whilst making great Australian variety television history.”
– Tony Avard, Bachelor of Arts (Creative Writing)
“Participating in previous workshops has been beneficial for me as gaining that practical skill-set experience helped to give me a better understanding on my theoretical studies.”
– Alen Chiew, Bachelor of Communications
“Whilst volunteering on RMITV’s Flagship Production I met many amazing talented people. Not only were the crew great people to work with, but I met people who are big names in the Australian media industry. People like Winners & Losers’ Virginia Gay, Good News Week‘s Claire Hooper, Triple J’s John Safran, Channel Nine’s Peter Hitchener and many more.
Through my time with Live On Bowen, I was offered an Internship with the ABC Television Department, that soon led into some work with their program Time Of Our Lives on ABC 1! This would not have been possible without gaining that confidence in RMITV’s Flagship Production.”
– Ronja Moss, Bachelor of Communications (Media)
“RMITV’s training workshops have taught me how to use the latest TV studio technologies such as EVS; they’ve allowed me to be mentored by RMITV alumni and senior news director at ABC, Ron Frim; and during their Channel Seven production tour, I was able to see an actual commercial network television studio in action.”
