Industry connections

Students make history on election night

Journalism students were given the opportunity to host the live state election coverage from the RMIT media precinct, joining Channel 31 to present of-the-minute updates and commentary on election night. The professional-grade tools and equipment available in the media precinct made for an impressive broadcast.

Together with students from Monash, Deakin, La Trobe, Swinburne and Melbourne Universities, the show was anchored, directed and produced by students, including live crosses via mobile and graphics designed in-house. 

Putting their technical and practical skills to the test, students made history by being the first local media to call in the final result of the night. 

Facilities and locations

With RMIT, you will learn from creators and practitioners with years of experience. You will benefit from our state-of-the-art media suite and work with professional-grade technology and materials.

RMIT’s facilities make our learning very hands-on. Almost every class includes equipment that is used in the industry, which helps me to understand concepts and further my technical knowledge.

Meet Darcy – multimedia coordinator

Darcy Muller wanted to build on his love of film and get some practical and theoretical experience in film and media before starting his career. He chose an Advanced Diploma of Screen and Media, and after graduating, went on to work behind the camera full time, producing documentaries, web content, interviews and video for social media, and long-form video.

“For film and video work, it’s all about putting in time on the equipment and processes. I feel that my studies at RMIT gave me the hands-on experience to be able to work in the industry without extra training.”
