Master of Film and Television
- CRICOS code: 075498D
Meet Charby Ibrahim
Most students in my cohort were quite interested in making films for social impact, while also focusing on the craft of documentary filmmaking and storytelling, myself included. For me, documentary has always been about political and social commentary, while offering a voice to those who are typically silenced, ostracised, or systemically excluded from the conversation. Then of course, there’s always been something about the creative audio-visual elements of film that have excited me. And I’ve tried to experiment with this by using a mix of animation and live action footage, and blurring the boundaries between narrative and documentary traditions. Sound design and music too, play a vital role in my films and are often just as important as visual elements. Hopefully, I’m only just getting started in terms of my creative experimentation, and that excites me no end.
