So this is cool. My university, Deakin Uni, has asked me back to speak at the awards for their “Deakin experience” short film competition. I’ll be talking building tension in story, as well as regaling the audience with tales of my time at Deakin (I’ll have to censor some of my residence days – O Week was wild at Deakin). Should be fun.
