MEDIA FUTURES with BHAUTIK JOSHI
How will media-making and storytelling change in one year? Five years? Beyond? What tools and techniques should we be across in order to make the most of these developments and continue telling honest and truthful human stories?
We discuss machine learning, virtual film production, augmented reality, and more with our guest in this talk, as part of the BC(M) Industry Talks series and the program’s capstone course Media 6.
Our guest is DR BHAUTIK JOSHI, an engineer and specialist in the intersection of arts, science, and technology. Bhautik has worked for the CSIRO, Industrial Light & Magic, Flickr, and currently works on all sorts of exciting things for Adobe Research in San Francisco.

DIRECTING AND STORYTELLING FOR DRAMA AND DOCUMENTARY with JIM LOUNSBURY
For this B.C(M) Industry Talk we talk the role of the director. A perennial figure on set since cinema’s earliest moments, the director’s role is a fluid and exciting one. What does a director do? How has this role changed over time? And what skills does a director need? We discuss this and much more, including what a jobbing director gets up to in quarantine, with our special guest in this talk.
JIM LOUNSBURY is an award-winning filmmaker who has worked with fellow artists, online communities, and some of the world’s biggest brands to explore new ways to engage with people through story. From feature documentaries The Meaning of Vanlife (Stan) and The Aussie Who Baffled the World (National Geographic) to his feature film Love is Now (Universal), Jim is passionate about stories that explore nomadism and adventure, tackling big themes through the prism of personal stories.
Each year students in RMIT’s Media Program conceptualise, organise, run and document a series of public seminar events in which a diverse range of established media industry practitioners are invited to participate in panel discussions about the state of the industry and also offer invaluable advice to aspiring makers on how to break in, the current ‘lay of the land’, and career pathway opportunities. The students are in their final semester* before heading out in to the world and it is a useful time to rethink possibilities for where they go next (and how), and to further build their industry networks.
