Ryan Herbert

Always on the computer playing games and on the internet, Ryan wants to be on the other side. Instead of just playing and browsing, he wants to be able to design and create games, websites and videos. He is currently enrolled in the Interactive Digital Media Course at Nepean Arts and Design Centre, TAFE NSW.

Joel Kellet

Joel Kellett has always had a strong interest in most things graphic and digital media, hence his interest in wanting to expand his knowledge and enrol in Interactive Digital Media at Nepean Arts and Design Centre, TAFE NSW.. The illusion of reality that digital media can create is what interests Joel most about the course. He feels Soundlapse has given him a greater understanding of the importance of local history and community and he hopes Soundlapse audiences will gain a deeper understanding of their community and what can be achieved through modern technology to convey story telling.

She hopes Soundlapse audiences will enjoy learning the wide range of history that lies in a small distance between stores, neighbours and community in St Marys.
