TAFE Western’s Screen and Media students showcased a number of their short films in front of a large and appreciative crowd at Metro Cinemas in Bathurst last Wednesday (December 2).
TAFE Western Media Teacher Simon Fraser said more than 120 people attended the night, which provided students the perfect opportunity to exhibit their works created in 2015.
"Our students have been working very hard over the year to create some outstanding work which deserves to be seen in a quality movie cinema and it was great to team with Metro Cinemas to showcase these films," he said.
"Over the past three years we have built a good relationship with Metro Cinemas and this year’s crowd was our biggest yet."
The films ranged in genre from comedy, action, sci-fi, documentary, time-travel, art-house, commercials and many more.
Advanced Diploma student Brody Mendham said it was a great opportunity for the students to show off their skills and talents to the community.
"Seeing our films on the big screen is an awesome experience. We look forward to this all year and we are so glad so many people came out to support us," Brody said.
TAFE Western’s media courses cover a range of production skills including filmmaking, camera work, editing, photography, graphic design, writing, animation and the latest Adobe programs.
“Our screening is not only a great night of entertainment, but is also a chance for potential students to see what they could learn at TAFE Western,” Mr Fraser said.
“Media courses at TAFE Western are now open for 2016 enrolments. For more information visit www.tafewestern.com.au or phone 6338 2452.”
