What our students say

"The UQ MaPs team are so generous in their time and patient with students, especially if you’re a beginner and have lots of questions. The support they gave me made an impact on the quality of my assignments and also relieved my stress when I was feeling stuck. If there’s one piece of advice that I can give to students, it’s to use the MaPs team for any creative production help.“

MaPS Helpful Hints

When shooting interviews indoors, look for quiet spaces where you have some ability to control noise and light (by closing doors or windows). For bonus points make sure the room has some interesting features (like a plant or picture) which can be used in the backgrounds of shots.
