Shedding light on the REAL Melbourne

6 December 2013

Written by: Steinar Ellingsen

Looking at the theme of ‘diversity and adversity’, the 6 episode television series of REAL focuses on exploring a range of diverse topics ranging from recreation, natural disasters, phobias, hair, prosthetics, and community versus corporation.

With the help of La Trobe University representatives, the series looks to explore these topics creatively and credibly. Interviews with the university’s experts assist in informing the public on matters relating to these themes, diving beyond the surface in order to educate the public on matters that remain prominent in society and in the media.

REAL is a student produced ‘serious entertainment’ series that not only showcases work from 3rd year La Trobe University Media: Screen + Sound production students but also one that promotes the diversity and research excellence within La Trobe’s academic cohort.

REAL S04 will broadcast every Friday night at 8pm from December 6, 2013 on C31 Melbourne & Geelong (digital channel 44) and repeats weekly on the following Wednesdays at 3pm.
