Congratulations to two Braemar College students whose 2014 Year 12 works have been selected for the VCE Season of Excellence.
Lucy Fleming Top Designs (Media – Print) and Conor Jamieson Top Screen 2015, who were recognised for their creative achievements, walked the red carpet at the Top Screen VIP function recently.
Robert Connolly (Director of the film, Paper Planes) spoke to the students at the VIP function, and urged them to be bold. His words also included a quote “be brave and walk on the precipice of failure.” He encouraged students to push themselves.
The VCE Season of Excellence presents works created by VCE students in design, technology, multimedia and the cinematic, visual and performing arts through exhibitions, screenings and performances supported by education talks, forums and panel discussions, catalogues, programs and online material.
The Season directly supports the VCAA’s goal to support high quality education, recognise student achievement and best practice teaching, and encourage students to move into allied work areas and further study.
Lucy’s work will be presented on the opening night of the Top Art Season of Excellence. Conor’s short film “Regret” was screened at the official opening of Top Screen, held at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) on Thursday 5 March. Conor was one of 13 students selected from more than 350 submissions.
Former Braemar College student, Jem Sherwill who now attends the Victorian College of the Arts is also featured in the top class sound for his musical performance “what a lovely day to have a wedding”.
We are extremely proud of our student’s achievements. These outstanding results are indicative of the creativity and dedication of these students, and of the quality of Braemar’s Visual and Performing Arts programs.
