Are you ready to dive into the world of film and TV magic?
Meet Juniper Dew, one of our talented students completing her Bachelor of Creative Arts (Screen) at Flinders University. Juniper will be showcasing some of her work, along with a number of her classmates in this year’s Screen Student Showcase: Sunset Screening as part of the Flinders Festival of Creative Arts.
The showcase is a movie night under the stars, held on campus in our outdoor plaza, where we will get to celebrate a year of filmmaking, creativity and collaboration.
Read more about Juniper and her journey so far at Flinders in Screen Production and what she is excited about showcasing at the Sunset Screening.
What degree are you studying?
I am studying a Bachelor of Creative Arts (Screen) at Flinders University – a specialisation inthe Creative Arts with a strong emphasis on film production; encompassing pre-production, on-set production and post-production of all types of films.
What inspired you to pursue a career in Film and TV?
I’m still very much unsure as to whether I wish to pursue film in a conventional, “career” sense, or whether I wish to branch from it and just use my skills, equipment and connections to bring my own personal creative projects to life. But in terms of inspiration, it’s just been a lifelong attraction to various forms of cinema, fond memories associated with films, and a desire to express myself through a creative medium which has the power and versatility to both adhere to and deviate from reality.
What project of yours are you most proud of?
Probably either 403, which is a micro short film i wrote and produced about a girl who loses herself within technology (heavily inspired by late 90s surrealist anime and the early internet), or Give Out, an abstract reflection on moments of despair across multiple unconnected lives.
What have you enjoyed most about studying Screen Production at Flinders?
The opportunities to develop both personal and professional relationships with other creative practitioners – fellow students, up-and-coming artists working within the industry, and staff members – alongside the wealth of equipment we have access to experiment with, under the enthusiastic eye of the staff.
What are you presenting at the Screen Showcase during the Festival of Creative Arts?
I am presenting both my aforementioned films – Give Out and 403 – alongside various other larger projects (3rd year/Masters films) that I crewed on.
Why should people come to see the Screen Showcase?
Because it’s a chance to get a taste of the wealth of creativity and individuality of a subsection of passionate creatives, and support them to continue to strive to express themselves through and develop their various flavours of cinema. To have your work seen is one of the most fulfilling and rewarding feelings you can get as a filmmaker, and by coming to the screen showcase, you are granting that to numerous others.
The Screen Student Showcase is your chance to check out the diverse talent, creativity and unique stories brought to life by passionate students at Flinders.
Mark your calendars and grab your popcorn for a movie night under the stars.
