Since finishing high school a career in visual effects has always been a dream for Harry Medlin. After graduating from university Harry found he didn’t have the practical skills to fulfil his goal so enrolled at TAFE SA.

“I thoroughly enjoyed studying at TAFE, and found the balance between practical and theory to be very good for such a practical industry.”

Harry said the facilities were excellent and lecturing staff went above and beyond to help their students to achieve their best.

“I really enjoyed the content, and the means with which it was delivered. The course began by covering a wide range of Visual Effects techniques, and then allowed the students to specialise in their chosen field.”

Harry recommends to students commencing the course to take advantage of the opportunities provided for networking with industry people.

“While at Animal Logic I worked on Unbroken, which I recently received a film credit for. At
Rising Sun Pictures I have been working on Pan, Tarzan and Gods of Egypt.”

Harry credits the TAFE SA course for giving him the fundamental skills to work in the visual effects industry.
