The Power of Sound

One thing that many creative fields share is sound.

Technology, of course, is the key, opening up opportunities for creativity in many fields. "With the growth in online entertainment, pay-TV, gaming, digital TV channels and traditional entertainment, there is now, more than ever, a need for quality content," says George Markakis, chief executive officer of JMC Academy.

"Finally, it is starting to sink in that Australia needs to harness the creativity and innovation it was once renowned for rather than rely on its natural resources forever. Therefore our graduates will be ideally placed to capitalise on this need by combining their talents, creativity, knowledge and understanding of technology."

One thing that many creative fields share is sound. Brenton Mortelliti loves sound. "I started doing audio in high school. I was in the school jazz band and I did all the audio for that and for all the school productions and speeches."

Now in the third year of a Bachelor of Creative Technology (Audio Engineering and Sound Production) at JMC Academy, Mr Mortelliti is already living his dream. "I'm doing work experience with a radio station in Geelong, doing their sport broadcasting," he says. "I have a little home studio, 1 record local Geelong bands, mostly to hone my skills."
