SEVEN Fijian students have been given a chance to work with world-renowned Warner Bros International Television Production Australia (WBITVP).

The Fiji National University students will be part of the production team presently in production of Season 2 of Bachelor in Paradise shot on location in Serua, Viti Levu.

According to a statement from FNU, the students will be on-set with the production team for six days from November 21-27.

Student Peter Yee who is part of the attachment said he was excited to be invited to work with the international production team.

He described the attachment as a ‘life-time opportunity’ and one that will provide him and the other students a great learning experience.

“I’m really excited to be chosen with the rest of the students to work on set. It’s surreal and we are all overwhelmed with this opportunity,” Yee said.

“The course itself is interesting because this is a field that I am interested in and film production is something I believe I am good at.

“I love the work that we put in scouting, shooting, acting and editing of videos. This is something that I will get to learn and observe while on attachment, so I’m really excited about that,” said Yee.

“I have big dreams of making my own videos and eventually working for a production house here in Fiji. So being placed on this attachment with WBITVP will certainly provide me with great experience and increase my knowledge and understanding about international productions.”
