The light at the end of the tunnel is becoming a dazzling dancing vision of sunshine I am about to complete the Bachelor of Media degree as a mature age student and just how mature is a well kept secret . First the whole journey has been most enlightening and I can hardly believe how fast three and a half years have passed. The real icing on the cake is the final units that I have scored for my self. This took some juggling but they are so to my liking .

First I am doing a unit called “To Be Continued” this is a media production unit and is done externally . I have to produce a media project complete with documentation of course and in conjunction with a course supervisor . There is a contract involved and that has to be read and signed by week four. I have seen these contracts before designed to squash the “I didn’t know I had to do that ” response. My media project will be The SCU Race Day a project I have been working on already in semester one. I thought why waste all the effort I put in filming in semester one . I have plans to reshoot some of the talent and cut some interviews with prominent characters. The next unit is Design an visual arts unit but done mostly on computer cool ….

Then comes not necessarily in an order … Digital photography two and having completed digital photography one this is a cool progression. It includes wet photography and printing of photographs for exhibition in art formats. The unit is a valuable one and is enhanced by the great lecturers who teach it in a most interesting and unique way ..

The final in the four and once again not in order of any kind as they all have a special meaning for me comes Borderlands a cultural studies unit looking at the effects of Colonialism from a post Colonial perspective considering the binary notions of cultural expressions transcending national, ethnic,  racial and gendered boundaries . This is a research project and will be most exciting  generating a comparative framework for the borders that defined epistemic, cultural,social,political,economic,gendered,racial,and class spaces and that legitimated and valorised them positively and negatively.
