NMIT’s Diploma of Screen and Media Graduates snapped up by WIN TV

05 Feb 2014

Three recent graduates of NMIT’s Diploma of Screen and Media have been offered Editing and Producing positions at regional television network, WIN TV.

 
NMIT’s Diploma of Screen and Media is a specialist course in screen and video production and utilises a $2.5 million world-class TV studio at the cutting edge of broadcast education in Australia. The studio provides students with direct experience in computer-based workflows, similar to the latest studio facilities around the world. When not in use, the studios are hired by major producers to create content to be aired around the world.
 
Most recently, one of Australia’s largest and most successful production companies, Southern Star, used NMIT’s studio to shoot part of an episode of the hit Channel 10 series Offspring. Diploma students operated the cameras and gained a unique insight into the workings of the TV production industry.
 
The state-of-the-art studio is also regularly hired by McGuire Media to produce their Foxtel TVN 522 show Get On. During the Spring Carnival they also shoot a second show called Two Cups and a Plate. Three Diploma of Screen and Media graduates have secured paid roles on this production.
 
“The Screen & Media Courses at NMIT offer ‘end-to-end’ skills in all areas of broadcast and internet-based media for the current age,” says Nick Lovett, NMIT’s Screen and Media Program Coordinator. “NMIT is the leader in Native HD, EVS and AVID training in the TAFE field, which makes our graduates highly sought after in the industry.”
 
NMIT has made this course accessible for those in full-time employment by offering the Diploma over two years and part-time.
 
Nick says, “This is the only such course that is run outside of business hours and it offers full-time workers a chance to realign their ambitions. One of our recent graduates spent almost 20 years as an electrician prior to studying with us and now has his dream job, working as a camera operator and editor with WIN TV.”
