QUT and BCM Group Launch Next Generation Vivid “Real World” Shoot


A new campaign from the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) via the BCM Group takes QUT’s long-held ‘real-world’ positioning to the next level in a fast-paced and gripping visual narrative that follows the journeys of real students in their epic race to success.

Directed by the famous filmmaker Mark Toia, the campaign “the real world begins here”, delivered in the form of films 30 “and 60”, is timed to the voice of the young poet slam, whose words transport us from the first day of the students , through a dynamic series of student experiences on campus and around the world, to a crescendo of professional excitement and reward.

Xavier Amouroux, general manager of marketing and communications at QUT, said it was important for this year’s campaign to bring new meaning to the real world who spoke about the practical learning environment of the university and demonstrated how the QUT student experience differs from that of other universities.

“We created this campaign to show students that we can truly match their aspirations and ambition. That their future will be bright and that QUT is positioned as the university of the real world, ”he said.

BCM’s creative duo Nick Ikonomou and Mike Rolfe said slam poetry was the perfect way to write a script that embodies the energy and enthusiasm of students marking the post-pandemic world.

“It has been a welcoming challenge forging a new campaign that takes QUT’s long established ‘real world’ positioning to the next level. It is a great shot of energy, attitude and unabashedly reaffirms QUT as a leader in real world learning, ”they said.

BCM Managing Director and Partner Phil McDonald said, “It has been a very enjoyable and collaborative process bringing this campaign to life with Xavier and his team. The work focuses on QUT’s unique competitive advantage over its competitors, taking the form of an incredible film and array of digital assets that will shine through on screens of all shapes and sizes and throughout the journey of the world. consumer.
