ALL THE WORLD’S A STAGE … Shannon Maugham’s Story
Since graduating from the College less than a year ago, 2014 College Captain Shannon Maugham has been pursuing her love of the creative arts. She is currently studying a Bachelor of Entertainment Industries at QUT, majoring in Film and TV, a 3-year course which provides the framework for graduates to pursue a career in the entertainment industry as a Producer - originating, designing and running a range of projects from TV shows and theatre, to cruises, books, even casinos! During her short time at QUT, Shannon has already been selected as a member of QUT Connectors, helping to run sessions for new students and planning events throughout the year. In 2016, Shannon hopes to study abroad for a semester preferably in the UK, or alternatively a study tour in either France or India. After graduating in 2017, Shannon’s goal is to become a Producer for a film or television company overseas.
In the meantime she has worked on various short film projects, and in collaboration with former Co-Captain Mark Mather, wrote a 10min play called ‘Love Essentially’ which they performed at the Gold Coast Arts Centre’s Short And Sweet Theatre Festival in July 2015.
Chookas, Shannon, and we look forward to seeing your name in bright lights on the world stage!
