Brisbane Film Students Volunteer at Bigsound

18 Sep 2014

Seven SAE Brisbane film students attended the BigSound Conference last week as volunteers, filming and editing footage of the keynote panels.

Students Justin Marais, Anya Tretyakova, Holly Edwards, George Graetz, Nisanth Kumar Raha Desigh, Katrina McKenzie and Zachary Woodley were joined by film supervisor Erik Malan across the three-day music conference.

With a busy schedule of filming frequent industry panels, followed by editing footage and uploading same day, the students worked brilliantly as a team, playing on their strengths, and delivering what the conference called their most ‘professional footage to date’.

Second year film student Justin said that he found the experience very beneficial to his film studies, and that he loved the hands on approach in a professional environment. “Working with a great team of SAE students helps as well! Got to meet Neil Finn!” he says.

First year student Anya also appreciated the opportunity, “All in all it was an amazing experience,” she says. “Everyone worked really well together, and our supervisors were brilliant”.

The students produced several videos over the conference, all of which can now be viewed online via

Photos are also available on the campus Facebook Page.
