Students had the chance to join 120 crew and cast on set, when Hollywood came to RMIT to film "The Leftovers".
The series' first two seasons were filmed in the United States, with the third filmed in Melbourne.
The show recently spent a day filming at RMIT’s iconic Design Hub.
Students from the Bachelor of Communication (Media) and the Bachelor of Design (Digital Media) in the School of Media and Communication had the opportunity to observe the set for the day with a large US crew.
Dr Brian Morris, who manages the Media program, said it was a really special opportunity for our students.
“The Leftovers is peak global television drama and to be able to spend time on the shoot of a major HBO series like this on your own campus is simply amazing," Morris said.
“It also gave students a great insight into a large-scale, high-budget production with up to 200 people on the set at its busiest.”
Media student Jordan Williams said it was amazing to see how much work goes into having two people deliver a couple lines on camera.
“Since this was a large international production, it really gave us the opportunity to see how far our careers could go," Williams said.
Associate Professor Lisa French, Deputy Dean (Media), said having Warner Broson campus shooting The Leftovers for HBO was a significant work-integrated learning experience for our students.
“We are committed to facilitating global industry engagements, but in this case they came to us!" French said.
“A location team facilitated student interactions and ensured their questions were answered.
“It is testament to the high regard in which our graduates are regarded that an important global industry player wanted to connect with our students."
The Leftovers season three will be the final in the series and will premiere on HBO in 2017.
