The Godzilla Project:
An online multimedia resource is helping undergraduate screen studies students at the University of Melbourne develop a dynamic connection with film history.  The 'Godzilla Project' is inpiring students to actively participate in a range of research tasks and creative interactive experiences while learning about monsters in general, and the King of the Monsters in particular.

For more information, visit the screen Screen Studies website at http://www.culture-communication.unimelb.edu.au/screen-studies/.

The Zombie State:
For the first time, the Union House Theatre has joined forces with a professional external theatre company, namely Melbourne Workers Theatre.  The result is 'The Zombie State', a wickedly twisted monster production asking the audience just what would Melbourne be like if it was overrun with Zombies?
