Who we work with
We regularly train teams from organisations like Virgin Trains, Government Digital Services, General Medical Council, Big Lottery Fund, University of Reading and many more.
For smaller organisations we offer the opportunity twice a year to join one of our open training courses designed for individuals and small teams.
We will come to you - you provide the venue and refreshments and we will do the rest.
We provide all camera equipment, microphones, tripods, lights etc for the training. If you have your own equipment you can bring it along so you can practise using it during the training.
We will send you a link to purchase and download the editing software to your laptops, which you should bring with you for the editing part of the training. If you do not have laptops available for the training, we can provide them with the editing software installed.
We will advise you the best equipment to purchase going forwards so you are all set up for success depending on your budget. But it is good to know that you can start creating great videos using your smartphone, an inexpensive microphone and some simple but smart workflows.
