In early June the media students in year 12 were invited to attend a day of filming and exploring future studies in media. The students were greeted with a talk on apprenticeships and then put in a class with one of the colleges teachers. The students were then given the task of creating a short chase scene and they split into two different groups to complete the task. Each group was given equipment that was state of the art and they set about using the full college premises to shoot their scene however they wanted. After an hour their time was up and all the footage was given to some of the current students studying media at Oaklands to edit and finish. It was an fun day that gave students the opportunity to see what it would be like to work in the media industry. Big thanks to the college for giving students that opportunity as well as offering dinner tokens that the students could use to get food if they wished.
