SAE LAUNCHES SIX MILLION DOLLAR PERTH CAMPUS

6 Dec 2015

SAE Creative Media Institute hosted a VIP launch of its new Perth campus in Northbridge on Thursday, 3 December.

Industry, media, staff and other key players in the creative industries sector converged on the $6 million campus for a first-hand look at the Institute’s world-class facilities.

The Institute, previously located in East Perth, offers government-approved and internationally recognised diploma and degree programs in five disciplines; film, audio, games, animation and design.

Deputy CEO of SAE Global, Jo Anthonysz, said the new campus had been architecturally designed and fitted out to provide the best possible student experience and learning outcomes.

“We’ve equipped the campus with the best facilities to support hands-on learning, including a film studio with cyclorama stage, flagship audio console and labs with industry-standard games development and animation software,” he said.

“Northbridge is the perfect location for SAE students – right in the heart of Perth’s cultural and creative hub, and close to public transport and affordable accommodation.

“With the creative industries valued at $33 billion in Australia, the entertainment and media market set to grow to almost $40 billion by 2018, and interactive games anticipated as the fastest growing consumer sector, there’s never been a better time to study at SAE."

SAE Perth employs more than 30 staff to deliver creative media courses to 265 students, with capacity at the new campus for up to 500 students.

The VIP launch incorporated a showcase of facilities and student work including a: 

• student recording of a rap artist;
• demonstration of the Custom Series 75 powered by Neve audio console;
• live broadcast from cyclorama room to post edit suite;
• screening of student film projects; and
• demonstration of games, animation and design projects.

SAE Institute is part of Australian global education leader, Navitas. The campus was officially opened by Navitas CEO, Rod Jones.
