THE chance to see your own work on the big screen is an opportunity not many people are able to savour, but Moama Anglican Grammar multimedia students have been able to enjoy such an experience.

Students from the school spent weeks creating backdrops in the lead up to the junior production of the musical Elf.

Multimedia student Kade Austin said the whole experience was a learning curve for many but really exciting.

‘‘We were able to learn new skills, work with software that we hadn’t really used before and put it all into different programs,’’ he said.

Each student was given a scene to complete for the big night and attended the Friday show to work backstage.

Kade, who was also starring in the show, said the experience was valuable for his peers, as many had no idea how it all operates.

Leading up to the production, the students worked with teacher Danny Hindson to master programs such as QLab, iClone and SketchUp and also collaborated with directors of the production, Kim and Glen McFadden on the aesthetics of the set designs.

‘‘Seeing how the directors wanted things to look and then combining our visions of what we thought it should look like, was a really good experience,’’ Kade said.

‘‘I would definitely do it all again.’’
