Student Field Trip on the MV Monarch

Boat Pic

It's that time of year again! Every August we bundle up the filmmaking students (along with the requisite wet-weather gear!) and introduce them to the trials and tribulations of filming from a moving boat. Our steady steed is the venerable ship the "MV Monarch," who in her regular work travels around the Otago Peninsula showing off the wonderful Otago coast and wildlife to countless tourists. We had wonderful weather for the trip this year and, as always, our students had fun while also gaining valuable skills and knowledge about filming on the high seas. A big thank you to the friendly crew of the Monarch who allow us to embark on this important annual field trip!
