The media career of Griffith University journalism graduate Scott Bidmead continues to impress, recently wrapping a six-part mini-series for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.
The Communities of the Games is being delivered across online and social media channels and 24-year-old Scott says it has been a rewarding experience.
“For instance, we filmed a segment with Australian discus thrower Matt Denny and got to know a lot more about his journey, not just his sporting ability and stats,” says Scott.
“We also filmed a segment looking at a small business operating in South-East Queensland during the Games, and a segment on the island nation of Nuie – the smallest nation in the Commonwealth Games.
“It’s been a lot of time in the making, but I couldn’t be happier to be presenting and producing the series. It’s been a great experience.”
Scott graduated from Griffith in 2013 with a Bachelor of Journalism. Since then he has worked in television and written for newspapers and magazines. He recently launched his own media company and has already taken advantage of filming opportunities in China.
