2020

Hello, I’m Evan, and I’m a 3rd-year student just finishing my Bachelor of Media Arts & Production degree. I’ve been really passionate for video editing and have been doing it for 7 to 8 years. I chose this course to further explore my interest in screen-based art forms and media. The course offered a diverse collection of units that introduced me to different areas of the creative industry. I have learnt many things on the way, about the creative processes, conflict resolution, creative collaboration and myself over the years.

I recently became intrigued with motion graphics after taking a unit last year that covered this subject. Since then I had been learning more about the commonly-used software, techniques and styles. Semester 2 presented an opportunity to use my current skillset in motion design to contribute to a large university-based project. I produced the motion graphic assets to be used in the project.

In the future, I hope to take the skills and lessons I have learnt into the field by doing freelance video editing and motion design for aspiring creators. I eventually want to creatively collaborate with other artists and produce more assets for artistic and entertainment purposes.
