The School of Culture and Communication and the Digital Studio are proud to present a selection of student projects, representing almost 10 years of consistently high-quality work in the subject Audio-Visual Communication.

Audio-Visual Communication is a core subject in the Master of Global Media Communication degree and an elective in the Master of Marketing Communication both of which now attract a large cohort of international students. Each semester students form teams to produce 4-minute non-fiction video stories. Students are given considerable stylistic freedom and are encouraged to present their own perspective, to engage other students as their principal audience and to entertain, provoke reflection and deliver insight rather than information or exposition.

"What stands out in this program are the rich, distinctive cultures these projects reveal bubbling beneath the surface of the University and the positive picture that emerges. Through these projects students have fiercely and energetically engaged with campus life and with the challenges of bridging the social, academic and professional worlds that confront them.

"Audio-Visual Communication is successful because it empowers students to experience media from the perspective of the producer and to create content on ideas, issues and people that matter to them and that they believe should matter to all of us. On behalf of the students I hope you enjoy this work and stay tuned for a lot more from us at AV Comms in the future" - Steven McIntyre, Subject Coordinator.

22 projects (90 mins) produced by Audio-Visual Communication students and curated by subject coordinator Steven McIntyre will be screened on loop in the Digital Studio from 10am until 4pm Monday to Friday until 6 September. A highlights reel will screen daily at lunchtime in the Arts West Atrium.

A special thanks also to the 2018-19 subject tutor Youri Dumousseau.
