The final media industries seminar certainly pulled out all the stops when it came to staging. Inspired by The Matrix and the neon glow of classics such as Tron, green lights and glow sticks were in abundance. With guests from diverse fields, the discussions were insightful and to the point, covering areas which are still
An interesting perspective this week, focusing on women in the media. A great trio of guests in different fields and of different generations revealed a great deal about the inequality women face in the media, but also what they did to get where they were regardless. While not as bombastic as the TV seminar, the
Breaking In was a fantastic follow-up to the Non-Fiction seminar last week, with a great lineup of guests, but also a great concept, structure, and excellent promotion (the food was pretty great too).

A lot of the readings regarding sound we were set for Film-TV 1 gave an overview of basic sound design concepts and the technical aspects of recording with different types of mics and equipment. Of course, I left the shortest one to last, and I’m glad I did, because it was a collection of points

A 10 second film about a specific place? Well Google thinks the internet is a playground, so why not? Did I just refer to Google as a conscious entity? No. No I did not.
