Before we started at RMIT, Cindy and I had a little design studio. It was an exciting journey, but we still had unanswered questions that we wanted to research through postgraduate study to create more meaningful designs for our clients.

Meet Anna – writer

Advanced Diploma of Professional Screenwriting student Anna Snoekstra’s first novel Only Daughter has been published in 19 countries and optioned as a film by Universal Pictures.

“I found the industry classes that we did once a week to be really helpful. People working in the industry would come in to talk and answer questions about what they do and how they got into that role. It was valuable to have the insight these people provided.”
