Sydney Graduate Showcase Sets A New Standard

11 Mar 2015

On Tuesday February 24, our 2014 Sydney graduates showcased their major projects to members of the industry, staff and their peers at the SAE Sydney Graduate Showcase. 

'The purpose of the graduate showcase is to connect our graduates with key industry members to further build their connections. They can use the showcase as a launching pad for pitching ideas, getting feedback on projects, marketing themselves and their services and getting to know "who's who" in their industry', says SAE Sydney Industry Liaison Coordinator, Mia Ljuboja. 

Following past tradition, recent graduates who had studied Animation, Design, Games and Web & Mobile presented their projects to members of the industry. However this year, 2014 Audio and Film graduates joined them in showcasing their portfolio pieces. 

Also a first this year was the peer-to-peer showcase, which allowed current students to preview the work of recent graduates. This proved to be highly successful, with current students finding inspiration in the quality work that was produced by their peers. 

Throughout evening industry members provided graduates with encouraging feedback on their creative projects, with many graduates making new contacts within their industry. 

Energy Groove Radio was also on-site taking interviews from industry guests and graduates. The special podcast from the Graduate Showcase will be available in the coming weeks. You can keep an eye out for it on the Energy Groove website (click here).   

'This year was the first year that the graduate showcase was held as such a large event, incorporating graduates and industry from all six academic streams. We really set the standard for future showcases this year. The student's work and industry feedback was outstanding. I'm so proud of our graduates for showcasing their hard work, and thankful to the industry for taking the time to come and share in their successes’, says Mia.
