Media Excursion

On Wednesday 4 September, the students completing Year 11 Media were live audience members for the television show ‘The Project’. As part of Unit 2 Media, students learn about the Media Production Industry, and this excursion allowed students to see firsthand how a television show is filmed and broadcasted. They saw the ‘behind the scenes’ processes of the program (as it is filmed live), and saw how hair, makeup, auto cue, camera operations, audience involvement, and ad breaks are executed professionally.  Students were able to interact with the hosts during the ad breaks; which included Waleed Aly (Gold Logie winner, lecturer in Politics), Carrie Bickmore (Gold Logie winner), Steve Price (Journalist) and David Thornton (Comedian). The students now return to their classes to undertake an investigation into the ways in which the roles of the media industry work, and the jobs undertaken during the production process.

Here are some photos of our boys in the ‘Green Room’ before the show:
