2017 VCE Media student Chelsea Stubbs will have her film from last year screened at this year’s Top Screen film festival and the Top Designs exhibition as part of the VCE Season of Excellence 2018:
Thursday 8 March – Wednesday 9 May 2018 at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI), Federation Square
Saturday 17 March – Sunday 15 July 2018 at the Melbourne Museum, Carlton
Chelsea says – “This film represents the warped innocence of a child who is constantly misled and misinformed, and the naivety of such a way of life. The promise of an adventure out in the wild is a full-blown fantasy in comparison to the horrors of real life. I was inspired by the Surrealist director and visual artist, David Lynch, the aesthetics of the period of the early 1800s, and post-apocalyptic visual themes – resulting in a deliberately unfamiliar landscape.”
Top Screen and Top Designs are part of the VCE Season of Excellence managed by Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority. The VCE Season of Excellence comprises twelve concerts (Top Class and Top Acts), two exhibitions, (Top Arts and Top Designs) and eighteen screenings of short films (Top Screen). All work is produced by outstanding VCE students who completed technology, design, visual or performing arts studies in 2017. Events are presented in Melbourne’s major cultural venues, and a number of associated education programs are offered in conjunction with Season events.
This is an outstanding achievement by Chelsea!
