Massey University Film & TV lecturer, Mathew Knight (one of NZ’s most successful cinematographers and Cashmere High old boy!) is in school on Monday 24th September at Lunch time.
This is an amazing opportunity for Year 12 and 13 students to find out more about the huge range of careers in the creative technology industry – film, TV, game, web, mixed realities, animation and VFX and creative leadership.
The Creative Media Production degree we offer is a unique one which is delivered at Massey University’s College of Creative Arts campus in Wellington. Our facilities include a volumetric motion capture stage and rig designed by Weta Digital, filming and greenscreen stages and our new $30m sound and post production studios including and immersive technologies lab.
Our graduates from last year have gone onto positions at Pik Pok games, Weta Digital, Flying Saucer Films, Pukeko Pictures (Thunderbirds), 21st Century Fox and Toybox animation in Auckland.
Screen is a growing industry that needs technically skilled artists and practitioners who can work creatively across a number of digital media production platforms and to meet this need our major pathways include Film & TV, Animation & VFX, Game Development, Web & Interactive and Directing and Producing.
The networks and connections our faculty has within the industry are impressive and they all still actively work in their chosen fields as well as teaching.
