Film & Television
Want to be in pictures? Want to write for pictures? QPIX Ltd
is Queensland's development centre for the screen and media industries, dedicated to the development of independent screen production and independent screen production professionals in the State, including screenwriters.
QPIX is the gateway for screen and TV students of all ages who want to learn, practice and advance their film, screen and television careers. To this end, an enthusiastic horde descended on the QPIX free Open Day at their Brisbane premises at 22 Warwick Street, Annerley (Brisbane) on Saturday,25 August 2012.
Visitors acquired all the right information about practical programs that would develop their skills to a level required by industry, with ‘hands-on’ screen and TV
production built into QPIX courses guided by industry specialists.
At the Open Day there were professional guest speakers who were
happy to answer questions about the industry, the jobs, the locations, the actors, and the equipment!
Enthusiasts visited QPIX’s
production studio, editing suite and training facilities, and saw the production equipment currently used by industry to produce the shows and films you watch on TV and the big screen. There were also screenings of the work of previous students and the
QPIX films that have won local and international awards. This could be you!
The Open Day was such a success that QPIX will probably
do it all again next year. Check out their website below to find out what other events are coming up for the film and television industry.
