How to enrol

Ryan Unicomb

I couldn't have done it without TAFE Queensland Brisbane

Ryan Unicomb's big break came after a team challenge to write and produce a short film which was viewed by an Australian feature film company. His team's impressive work landed them roles as camera operators for the Queensland production of One June Afternoon. "I was so excited to work on the set of a real feature film. I wouldn't have received this opportunity if it hadn't been for my teachers at TAFE Queensland Brisbane."
