Work Experience At Film School In Hong Kong!

Last month we welcomed two high school students from the Australian International School in Kowloon Tong to IAFT for their work experience.

We were very pleasantly surprised by their professional, willing attitudes and just how helpful they were. I must admit we’re missing the girls now!

Here’s a brief testimonial written by Maddy after her week with us:

“Coming from a slightly less formal, professional industry in my first work experience week (SPCA), I was incredibly nervous and didn’t know what to expect about working in an office. Luckily for me, my peer and friend Kelly was doing work experience here already when I turned up on the first day. She showed me the check-list of duties to do in the morning when I would arrive at the office and at the end of each night (Turn on the Lights, Check Voicemail, Turn Music and Televisions on etc). It was nice to have someone to also show me the storage room and how to remember the names of all the professional film equipment!

On my first day, I got straight into helping out around the office and even got to set up one of the large HD film cameras. I’d never gotten to do hands on things before with proper equipment since I was always told to stand and watch, but at IAFT it was great that I got to be involved with setting up the classrooms and cameras as soon as I arrived.

Later on in the week, I got to be more involved in the marketing side of the school, which was really interesting. We don’t get to do ‘marketing’ as a subject in school so I didn’t even know what it was about before coming to IAFT. I got to work with Katie the Marketing Coordinator to analyse all of the adverts and media, to see how potential students were hearing about the school. So rather than just be doing one job inside the office for a whole week I got to do a bit from each department (Admissions, Marketing and Administrations). As a bonus, I got to work with the Hollywood standard professional equipment they use!

At first I was really worried about coming into an office environment, and being a student with no real-life work experience was a bit daunting. But I’m definitely glad I made the decision to apply for work experience at IAFT this year.”
