Advanced TV Presenters Course off to a great start

Advanced TV Presenter Course with Damian Walshe-Howling

Advanced TV Presenters Course gives professional presenters a confidence boost.

As a TV presenter in the Australian industry, if you could choose to be mentored by just one industry professional you would choose Logie award winning producer Pam Barnes. An industry veteran Pam has been executive producer at GTV and the brains behind Carols by Candelight and the Logies. During her 40 + year in television Pam has worked with presenters such as Bert Newton, Graham KennedyDon LaneDaryl and Ossie on Hey Hey, It’s Saturday.

The advanced TV Presenters course first ran in 2013 and proved to be a very popular course, catering for professionals in the industry who were looking to upgrade their skills and boost their showreels. Participating students each received mentoring from course director Pam Barnes and course mentors George Macencroe from TV’s The Circle and Australian Actor Damian Walshe-Howling.

For their final shoot participants were asked to research and conduct an interview with Damian Walshe-Howling, an experience that proved the be an important lesson in the importance of research and appropriateness of questions asked. This final shoot compliments the other pieces shot throughout the course. We are looking forward to seeing the final edits.

“I really enjoyed it. It was a good group of people to bounce off and learn from which adds to the experience. I loved working with Pam, I felt a true sense of professionally working rather than just a class-teacher situation. I also enjoyed George and her time with us, she had great insight, tips and suggestions that were really helpful. Damian was the same, he was very generous and I loved that he took the time to discuss the interview with me afterwards. Damien and Elle were also great, very supportive environment and lots of fun. I think the only thing I wanted was a longer course because I enjoyed it so much I want to keep going.”
