Congratulations Jaxon

Emily Ace, South Western Times, 19 July 2018

Jaxon D’Ath was announced as the runner-up for 2018 for his film ‘Mirror Dimension.’ A fantastic achievement for one of our Year 12 creative studies students. For full details on our finalists … 

Manea Senior College is a force to be reckoned with in the 2018 Cinesnaps Short Film Competition, with four of its Year 12 students announced as finalists – out of a total of seven places – this week.

Duo Nina Raper and Lewis Stiglmoyer, Ky Williams, Darcy Steinbacher and Jaxon D’Ath were short-listed for their films reflecting this year’s theme “mirrors”.

Each of the finalists’ films will be screened at a red carpet Grand Finale event on August 23, as part of the CinefestOZ Film Festival, where the winner will be announced.

Nina worked with Lewis to create abstract film Critical Reflection, which Nina said was about the subconscious and how “the experiences we have affect the people we are”.

Nina said she was shocked to be named a finalist for the second time and hoped to go a step further and win this year’s competition.

Darcy created her film Agatephobia which follows a girl with schizophrenia, for her first time entering the competition.

“It explores mental health and the importance of having friendships and relationships to support you,” Darcy said.

“I am really excited, I am really keen to go to the screening and see everybody else’s films.

“It’s a really great opportunity and I am really proud of us all getting this far.”

Although it was not his first time entering, it was the first time Jaxon was named as a finalist for his film about an elderly couple who discover a portal to a mirror dimension.

“It becomes quite difficult for them to cope and the husband, who loves it quite a lot, has to make a difficult decision as to whether to stay in reality or stay in the mirror dimension.”

The students worked on their films for eight weeks prior to submission, with some of the films including animation and visual effects.

Chloe's heading to UWA

Manea Senior College Year 12 student Chloe Barber is kicking some major goals in life at the moment, having been reserved a place at UWA and being selected into the Department of Human Service’s Indigenous Apprenticeship Program.

Her place at UWA was reserved via the school of Indigenous Studies after attending the UWA Year 12 Leadership Seminar for Aboriginal students earlier this year.

In May this year she applied for the Indigenous Apprenticeship program with the Department of Human Services and was selected as one of the 250 successful applicants out of more than 2400.

Not only is Barber studying Year 12, but she is also completing two VET qualifications on top her school studies as well as working two casual jobs. The secret is organisation.

“I’m quite an organised person and committed to everything I do,” she said.

“I just find time each day to get every single thing done while of course keeping an eye on my wellbeing — there is always time in the day.

“I’m passionate about what I do and that definitely makes things a lot easier.”

All of this commitment and passion will be put to good use in 2019 when Barber will be both studying and working full time, with her sights firmly set on a career in advanced medicine.

“I really want to get into something like neurosurgery or cardiothoracic surgery — something that effects a lot of people and to be the person to make a big medical breakthrough.”
