Thomas's story

Name: Thomas Lunney
Profile: Creator
Course: Diploma of Screen & Media

Creator - Thomas LunneyThomas Lunney makes great happen as he packs his big artistic personality into his hair style, which he likes to call the 'crazy wave'.

By now you have probably worked out that Thomas is a born Creator, he grew up drawing, painting, putting on plays to entertain his family and dreaming up wild ideas.

At 17 Thomas fell in love with the idea of studying Screen and Media after watching Star Wars for the first time. He was so captivated by the movie that he began to fantasise about creating his own big blockbusters, even if it was just with his dad's old video camera....for now.

After Thomas saw the high quality of work being produced by TAFE Queensland Gold Coast students he decided to begin his journey to Hollywood by enrolling in the Diploma of Screen and Media at TAFE Queensland Gold Coast's Coomera Campus.

Thomas feels right at home on campus, where he is surrounded by like minded imaginative souls. The echoes from the Music students can be heard humming up the halls, Graphic Design students display their magnificent masterpieces on the walls and the Sound Production kids can be seen in the theatre doing....umm....whatever it is they do behind the scenes.

Thomas draws his inspiration from the likes of Directors such as Steven Spielberg, Ridley Scott, and Christopher Nolan, who always manage to keep audiences on the edge of their seats, a talent Thomas hopes to share when he is an accomplished Director in his own film company.

Until then, he will go onto further study after he completes his diploma at TAFE Queensland Gold Coast and continue to unleash his mind and imagine what might be, what could be and what will day.
