Why I’m studying… Diploma of Screen and Media

Aspiring filmmaker Felix Wilkins chose to study close to home at Collarts in Melbourne. He says meeting fellow students is one of the highlights.

Felix Wilkins has been a passionate film buff since his teens. It was only a short step from watching to making and now, in his 20s, he’s the owner and operator of a small video production/editing business, Yabba Films.

After years of teaching himself from YouTube, and mostly working solo, Wilkins decided to hone his skills, gather resources and meet fellow filmmakers by enrolling in a Diploma of Screen and Media at Melbourne’s Collarts (Australian College of the Arts).
