'Media Arts is a course for those who want to make it happen. Forward thinking, hands on, involved, inspiring are just a few things that come to mind about the style in how this course works. I believe it to be the solid grounding that has lead to a rewarding career in the Film and Television production industry...' Angus Ellis (Media Arts graduate)
