AILEN VOICEOVER: Here at network ten I’m a lighting director which includes roles such as setting up for shows, and balancing out different levels of lights during shows. I chose RMIT because I heard a lot of good reports about the courses there. It’s a very practical course, and yeah, I found that everything I learnt at RMIT was really applicable and beneficial for me. I mostly enjoyed working with the teachers, they were really encouraging, especially when I was making a lot of film. The highlight of my time studying at RMIT was definitely getting to make my own documentary in my final year.
