SAE Creative Media Institute is set to unveil its whopping five million dollar Melbourne campus expansion later this month. The public open day is offering up a bunch of master-classes and demonstrations with industry experts as well as a Q&A panel with guest speakers.

SAE is inviting aspiring audio engineers, filmmakers, animators, gamers, designers, photographers and other creatives to tour the world-class campus, meet the staff and experience a range of live demonstrations.


Attending the Open Day will be Stephen Watkins, winner of the 2010 Young Creative Achiever of the Year award, Australian big wave surfer, Mark Matthews and award-winning film maker and director, Macario De Souza. Alongside them will be Head of Games at SAE Brisbane and games curator, Dr Christy Dena and former lead singer and songwriter from Killing Heidi, Ella Hooper.


From a small campus in North Fitzroy to one of the largest campuses worldwide, it’s clear SAE are stepping up their game. The new campus will allow their capacity to almost double. General Manager of SAE, Lee Aitken has said “We’ve equipped the campus with the best facilities to support hands-on learning, including a 360 square feet sound stage where students can build full-size film sets, high-end recording studios, control rooms and post production studios, student art gallery, Wacom tablets for design and animation and Oculus Rift virtual reality headsets for 3D gaming”.


The leading global provider of creative media education offers up government-approved and internationally recognised diploma and degree programs in six disciplines: film, audio, games, animation, design and web & mobile. Head down to the open day and get your creative juices flowing!
