About Marnie Jane

Content Creator

I am servant hearted and skilled with a passion for creating digital content.

I am motivated to work within the Christian/Catholic/Not for profit sector.

I am a content creator based in Geelong. I have a broad range of skills, most notably my video production. I am up to date with current skills and research from my recent study.

I have extensive experience in Christian and not for profit organisations:

  • I have been working at OneHope Baptist Church since 2019.
  • I volunteered at 96three FM for 5 months.
  • Volunteered with the Salvation Army’s “Little Shed” for 9 months.
  • Helped tutor children in the Salvation Army’s “Just Brass” program.

While the last two roles are not entirely relevant to content creation, they significantly contributed to my formation and development in important transferable skills. In the realm of content creation:

  • I also volunteered at PillowFort Creative animation studio in Geelong
  • Worked on numerous one-off video productions around the Geelong area.

My qualifications are: Diploma of Screen and Media, and am currently studying a Bachelor of Communications (Digital Media) at Deakin University. I have also completed a handful of TAFE courses in the area of music, sound production etc.

Interested in seeing my work?

PDRM Online Course

I worked with Chris Piper to develop instructional videos for his online course. He wanted a video for each of his 5 modules and one overview video.

I suggested we also film a promotional video for social media to help advertise his course. This is that video. As you may notice, I optimized it for social media by using a square aspect ratio and including captions. I helped him develop a succinct script and kept it within 30 seconds.

OneHope Kids

In my work at OneHope Baptist Church, I produced videos for the children’s ministry for the duration of the lockdown. I worked together with the OneHope Kids leaders and under the guidance of my supervisor.

This was a good challenge, as children’s content was not an area I had much experience in. Over the last couple of years of lockdown, I have significantly extended my skills in the area of children’s content, learning to experiment with fun graphics and special effects (we even bought a green screen and used it for an entire season!). Standard editing conventions did not apply for this project! We all had the opportunity to be a little creative and spontaneous, from the kids leaders with their scripts, to myself in the editing room!

You’ll notice in this episode the flag at 00:51. It was actually a creative solution I came up with to solve the problem of Sally’s arm extending beyond the green screen. It turned out to be a great addition to the Space Theme!
