Congratulations to our recent graduate, Tamar (TJ) Hibbert, on your outstanding achievement in the Film & Television course.
Tamar recently won The Elizabeth Cass Achievement Awardwhich is the most prestigious achievement award that can be bestowed upon any JMC Academy student. It is presented to a pre-eminent graduating student who has achieved excellent academic results throughout their term of study. The winner is an individual who has shown consistently excellent grades, and is an individual who demonstrates true spirit and attitude, a successful ‘all- rounder’ in both class and general campus activity.
TJ was a high performing student who specialised in Producing and worked very empathetically with a whole host of students across a range of projects. The short documentary, Drift is Life, directed by Matty Styles and produced by TJ, won the Martini Film Award for Best Documentary. TJ also managed the Outside Broadcast requirements of the Face the Music Conference 2013, where she produced many hours of footage and navigated delivery of the sessions via a lengthy post production path. TJ, along with Anna Kemp helped produce a short film very late in the piece with a student in a higher trimester who was struggling with their idea. The project ended up being made, (The Girl & The Goldfish), which was also nominated for Martini Film Awards. TJ also assisted Melbourne Head of Film & Television, Peter George, on a short film project / JMC collaboration called Hope City, which Peter produced and will premiere in 2015. TJ worked as a Production Manager and First AD.
