The “Room With A View Media” studio was hard-hit by COVID-19, given they had planned to produce the long-running 3RRR show of the same name as part of their studies into radio production and programming. Once 3RRR suspended in-studio activity, the studio was left in the lurch.
However, some quick thinking and hard work by studio leader Heather Jarvis and the students involved has led to the Conversations in Isolation podcast, now available on all podcasting platforms.
The podcast features in with lawyers, musicians, fellow students and more on how they’re keeping busy and spending their time during lockdown.

The short documentary film NOW DEPARTING PLATFORM 1 — directed by B.Comm (Media) student Lucy Edwards, and produced by Edwards, Tess Macallan and Eamon Willis — will screen as part of the 6th Annual REEL GOOD FILM FESTIVAL at the Lido Cinema on Saturday March 14th at 12.00PM and 4.PM.
The film was created as part of the REAL TO REEL Media Studio (led by Rohan Spong) in 2019. It celebrates a sense of community within a local railway station and shines a light on retiring station master Jim Jaworski of Auburn Train Station.
The film had previously taken out the top prize at the RUSU (RMIT Student Union) Film Festival.
New Bachelor of Communication (Media) students were welcomed at the program Orientation event on Monday 24 February 2020. The students were welcomed (appropriately) in the Media Portal: the event had a quick run-through of the program, intros to the Media team and each other, a zippy tour of the campus, and then back to the Portal for lunch.
All the best for your studies!
