Student testimonial - Lauchlan Pevie
Bachelor of Film and Television
"Studying at Swinburne has really helped me streamline my career ambitions and develop realistic goals for myself, some of which I have already been able to achieve, such as having my film screened at an international film festival and winning an award.
I can’t thank the teaching staff enough for all the help and advice that I was given while my production team and I were working on our clay animated film “Good Morning”. Without their support I’m sure the film would not have been as successful as it has, by going on to win the Platinum Remi at the international WorldFest Houston film festival. I was obviously pretty happy to find out that our film had won. The thing that surprised me the most was that we weren’t entered into a student category - we were right in there with the big boys. I was amazed to find out that we were up against professional film-makers. And yet, we won.
