Student collaboration on show for The Collide Project

The Collide Project is a collision of several programs where students collaborate and interact to produce a live and post-production of a show.

The Collide Project, ran out of RMIT's College of Vocational Education, is a series of live music gigs that are recorded and captured live, edited and shared with musicians and on social media.

The project provides Live and Sound productions students as well as Screen and Media students with industry-like experience to demonstrate their skills and knowledge.

There are a few student groups, ranging from lighting, camera, sound and event photography.

A director, a teacher who is an expert in the field, is appointed to lead the production and it is an industry standard setup with live professional musicians and the students are expected to complete their tasks in a proficient manner. 

Sound production student David Turner said that Collide showed him how many different teams can work together and support each other.

Collide really showed me how lots of different teams can work together in the creative space, making way for each other and supporting each other at the same time.

Rebekha Naim, Project Manager, Sound and Live Production, said that The Collide Project is a chance for teachers to take a step back and observe their students work.

"It's an opportunity for teachers to sit back and see the students' skills develop before their very eyes," she said.

"And become facilitators rather than instructors."

Student Olivia Zammit said this approach from teachers helped her thrive during the project.

"They were always there when we needed advice and if we had any questions," she said.

"They also let us make small mistakes and let us figure things out for ourselves."
