Over the last week, media trainees from all over Queensland attended a week of intensive media and technology training at the BIMA Multi-Media Centre. 11 Trainees from BBM Cairns, 4k1g Townsville, 4US Rockhampton and My105fm Mackay, participated in activities in film-making, broadcast technology and radio skills. The group participated in the Radio Maroon broadcast and the Gympie Muster second artist announcement which gave them the chance to interview Shane Howard, Peter Denahy and Chelsea Basham. The group also went on a tour behind the scenes of the Queensland Performing Arts Centre and previewed a rehearsal of the up-coming production “Stradbroke Dreamtime” and got the opportunity to interview some of the actors. There was also a tour of the new ABC studios in South Bank. Saturday, the mob attended Styling’ Up festival, one group made a documentary on their week in Brisbane and others got a lot of interviews from some great First Nations talent. The week of training helped our trainees gain competencies towards their Certificate 3 in Broadcast Technology, Certificate 4 and Diploma in Screen & Media.
