Congratulations to the creators of Endless for wining the award for the best film in this year’s Digital Video module!
Endless follows the story of Lily as she begins to create her first video blog to share the stories in her life. But her vlog soon becomes a cry for help for the domestic violence she receives in her relationship with her boyfriend Ben.
Digital Video is a first year practical module which gives Media students the opportunity to work together as a group to produce a short 5 minute film. The winners of this year’s best film were voted for by their classmates.
Last MCC Movie Night of the year! So crack open the mince pies and get your slippers on for our screening of Elf

First Year student Shauna successfully completed a 24 hour filmmaking challenge this weekend! Her short video, The Artist’s High, can be seen here:
The film follows the Journey of an artist who decides to go on a train and see where life will take her. She has never seen fireworks before and so she’s amazed at this new experience with all the new colours. However the train journey and visiting new places never actually happened and it was just a hit of Heroin. The whole “trip” Is played backwards and you see that the first step that she took was really just a step in the drugged up world she’s living in. You later discover that it never happened when you see a rope tied around her arm with a needle in the other hand laying unconscious on a couch.
Shauna’s intentions of the film is not to promote or romanticise drug use, but use the 24h film challenge as a creative outlet for her passion for film making!
Just when you thought MCC couldn’t get any more creative, we’ve now been green-screening the head of a unicorn! A group of Digital Video students have a fantastic story to tell… with the help of a little green-screen magic.
The plan was to green-screen just the head of the unicorn, and replace it with smokey imagery and rainbow colours.
This was just a test shoot, to see how the green-screening would work in controlled lighting conditions, but we can’t wait to see the final product!!
