After working in sound production for 13 years, Eneti Waretini returned to study and branched out into video work.
I had been working in sound production for 13 years and wanted to branch out into video. I chose RMIT because I had always liked the City campus and wanted to study there.
I found the program to be really practical, and I gained video production and digital content design skills. Gaining these skills helped lead to a really smooth transition into employment. I found work before I finished the program, as did most of the students in my year.
I had the opportunity to do work experience at Kensington Community High School teaching digital media and film. It really benefited me by giving me experience in the field of teaching where I currently work.
I also subcontract to Ramus Illumination, who are world leaders in large-scale lighting and video design. With them, I have designed video content for two Guy Sebastian tours as well as for rapper 360’s performance at the 2012 ARIA Awards.
If you’re considering a career in live production and tech, I say just dig in! Get lost in what you love and geek out. It’s fun and I feel lucky to get paid to do something I’m genuinely interested in.
