Behind the studio glass at SAE

If you’ve ever wanted to check out the other side of the soundproof glass in a recording studio, or cast your eyes over state-of-the-art film equipment, then come along to SAE’s open day next month!

The campus will be open, to all ages, for anyone who is interested in a career in the audio or film industry. There is no schedule – simply turn up any time between 11am and 3pm and join one of the campus tours.

A visit to SAE open day will include a full tour of all SAE’s studio facilities, including the new, state-of-the-art, film studio which is currently under construction and due for completion later this year.

Tours will be led throughout the day by SAE lecturers and campus staff, who will also give short presentations about all available programmes, potential careers in the industry and the achievements of SAE alumnae.

Graduates of SAE Creative Media Institute leave qualified to work locally or internationally within the film and/or audio fields.

The creative industries in New Zealand remain a burgeoning sector. A 2015 report prepared by PwC for WeCreate.org.nz uncovered that New Zealand’s creative industries (including the book, music, television and film sectors) annually contribute more than $3.5 billion to the local economy.

This is similar in size to the forestry sector, double the size of the printing sector, and half the size of sheep, beef cattle and grain farming. SAE campus manager, Dr Suzette Major, says the open day is a rare opportunity to gain an insight into life as an SAE student.

“We are a tight-knit community working together on a small campus, which gives students a truly unique learning environment. Taking part in our open day will give potential students an excellent grasp of what life would be like should you choose to come and study with us.”

SAE has 50 campuses in 28 countries around the world and qualifications are recognised internationally. Qualifications on offer include Bachelor of Recording Arts, Diploma of Audio Engineering, Certificate in Electronic Music Production, Diploma of Film and a Bachelor of Film Arts.

Job prospects for graduates are diverse, including recording studio engineer/producer; live sound technician; audio production for theatre, camera operator, scriptwriter and 3D animator to executive producer and film editor, and radio industry work.
