What our graduates think

Director and cinematographer Mirco Guidon is a 2015 and 2016 Nextwave Youth Film Awards winner and a Southern Cross University media graduate.

Mirco said there was no singular path to follow in developing a career as a filmmaker.

“I made short films, submitting them to local festivals including Nextwave (called Rec Ya Shorts at the time), watched countless hours of YouTube tutorials and at the same time studied Media at Southern Cross Uni which gave me a strong theoretical foundation. It’s a constant process of learning, but it started with just getting started. With getting out there and shooting.”
