This week we meet #SAECREW member Alicia Eames. While Alicia has traveled the world as a location sound recordist, she treasures her role teaching film students at SAE Brisbane.
Alicia Eames is an experienced international location sound recordist who has worked on a wide range of projects from feature documentaries to award winning TV shows. As well as freelancing as a sound recordist, Alicia is currently conducting research into spatial sound for virtual reality films at Griffith University and is a lecturer at SAE Creative Media Institute. Alicia is passionate about the transformative power of sound to move audiences through film-based storytelling and loves nothing more than fantastic and clean on-set audio.
THE FUN STUFF
Why do you love working at SAE?
The staff and students! The staff at SAE have incredible industry backgrounds and are very passionate about teaching - the culture is a really lovely place to work. The students are dedicated, engaged and talented - my students make teaching fun and a highlight of my week.
What is the best fun fact about yourself?
Lady and the Tramp is my favourite Disney movie - I cry every time Jock howls after Trusty gets run over by the wagon (even though I KNOW he is ok)
How do you like to spend your time outside of SAE?
Adventuring on doco shoots and spending time with my family. And eating - I love food so much.
What is your life motto?
Love the people around you. Work hard. Go for it - take the opportunities that come your way. If not this, then something else. Keep moving. - I don't really have a motto but these all kind of ring true for me.
What is your dream holiday destination?
I have travelled all over the world with my work but there is one place I really adore - New Zealand. It is the most stunning unbelievably beautiful country. Also - Sarajevo and Croatia.
Are you working on any exciting projects at the moment?
I've just returned from working on a documentary in the Torres Strait - I can't tell you what it was about (yet) but will be able to soon ;-)
