  • What is the best university to study Film production, movie making or television production ?
  • Where can I study to be a Producer, Film maker, Movie Director, Cinematographer, Film Crew or Stage staff ?
  • The near future will see more films  incorporate CGI (Computer Generated Images) technology and life like animation with movies like Avatar, 300, Gladiator, Star Wars and Beowulf being good examples. This leads to a need for cross skilling such as Visual Arts and Computer Animation studies.
  • A bachelor university degree in Film Studies or Television, Screen offers grads the best chances of finding work in a myriad roles in the growing film making ( movie, motion picture, cinema), television (TV) and video production, advertising and entertainment industry in Australia.
  • Australia  makes some of the best films and  produces some highly famous actors
  • Ever since blockbuster movies such as  Star Wars, 300, The Matrix, Mission Impossible, Superman and Happy Feet were made in Australia, there has been a good increase in demand of film making professionals in the Australian motion picture production and television industries.

  • In other words, it is unwise to think  Film making as a  career guarantees income or employment stability. Not every in the business has a job  all the time or makes heaps of money.
