IRMITV is RMIT University’s student-run television production house. RMITV produces content for both online and broadcast platforms. The majority of content is broadcast on C31 Melbourne and Geelong (digital 44).
RMITV provides hands-on television experience to RMIT students and members of the local community. Many ex-members have gone on to paid employment in the TV and AV industries.
RMITV is one of the founding members of Melbourne Community Television Consortium (MCTC). MCTC is the not-for-profit consortium that operates the community access channel (C31) in Melbourne.
RMITV is governed by Student Community Television Inc. (SCT). As an incorporated association, SCT is able to remain a full member of MCTC. As an external body SCT is also eligible for various Government and community grants. In the past, money from grants has gone towards the purchase of equipment, such as a Sony V1P camera and Ianiro Redhead kit.
Interested students and community members can run for election to the board of directors of Student Community Television Inc. at the Annual General Meeting. Keep an eye on the newsfeed for when and where this happens each year!
RMITV has a long history of producers and practitioners moving into professional employment. Our alumni include Rove McManus (Roving Enterprises), Hamish and Andy (Fox FM), Shona Devlin (JTV – Triple J) and Andrew Tacon (Foxtel). We’ve also had crew members go on to work at the ABC, Network Ten, Videoworks, AusStage, Staging Connections and many more.
Crewing on an RMITV production will give you invaluable skills and experience, so go on and get involved!
