Screen Futures


Adobe Education was very pleased to be involved with the Screen Futures Summit & Youth Media Festival in Melbourne from July 1-3.

This is the second time that ATOM (Australian Teachers of Media) have run this international summit, this time in conjunction with RMIT and ACMI (Australian Centre for the Moving Image.


The opening of the Summit featured one of Melbourne’s most popular comedy musical groups Tripod who set the scene for a fun and dynamic event.


The Victorian Minister for Creative Industries The Hon. Martin Foley MP gave an official welcome and praised the organisers for putting on the Summit.

The three-day event involved about 600 delegates from Australia and overseas and was an opportunity for industry professionals, educators, academics and students to get together and share their collective passion for the screen.

The impressive list of presenters included representatives from screenwriters, film, TV, visual effects, animation, web design, gaming, radio, sound design, journalism, photography and more.

I had the pleasure of running a couple of workshops. The first was on story telling with the Adobe Spark iOS apps and the second was a 1hr intensive on the basics of video editing with Adobe Premiere Pro.


Special congratulations to Kate McCarthy Ficai, the Summit organiser, and her team for putting on such a great event.
