Video Production and Delivery

Five Day Course

Overview

This intensive five-day course covers the complete video production process from concept to delivery. The aim is to produce a project using your ideas (we can work with you on the treatment if you wish), encountering real, practical issues along the way and working through solutions to bring the project to fruition.

Emphasis will be placed on gaining the actual craft skills used to give your project an edge rarely found in small-scale production units.

During the five days, you will plan, shoot, edit and post-produce an entire video production.

By the end of the course, you will understand the terminology involved, have a secure foundation in the concepts and have the confidence to work on similar projects on your own.

You will also have an excellent understanding of the workflows involved in video production so that you can accurately commission and cost projects from a supplier.

Our instructors are highly experienced broadcast professionals with excellent training portfolios. You need no previous video production or editing experience to attend this course.
