Poor Sydney and Melbourne, stuck in lockdown whilst our Brisbane campus enjoy their freedom! One thing’s for certain, we know how boring lockdown can be. The feeling is all too familiar, you have exhausted your Netflix watch list, mindlessly scrolled on TikTok for 3 hours and the book that has been staring at you from your shelf all year just isn’t tempting enough to pick up.
To help cure your lockdown boredom, we have put together a collection of our favourite new work by JMC’s Film, Animation and Music students, check them out!

Elina has followed all the rules in life, highschool, get a degree, get a job, but finds she isn’t satisfied. Stuck in the rut of a 9 to 5 job that she is constantly failing at, she thinks there is no way out, and begins to accept her reality. Locked up deep inside is a part of her that won’t give up, and longs to explore the world and be part of nature. This part of her leaps up into the real world and reminds Elina of her forgotten dreams. It shows her the world map she marked with her travel plans as young teen, and her shoebox filled with postcards and pictures of all around the world. She remembers this part of herself that never wanted to be part of the 9 to 5 working life, and decides to walk away from it, and instead live her dream of exploring the world.
