BESPOKE TRAININGS

If you require more specialised or personalised assistance than our workshops can offer, you can access the expertise of our production team by requesting surgery time or booking a parachute session.

SURGERIES

Surgeries are one-on-one consultations with our production team. If you have questions about using the equipment CADARN provides or you need help with any other aspect of production, you can set up a surgery time by emailing: surgery@cadarn.ac.uk.

PARACHUTE SESSIONS

Parachute sessions are hands-on, “meet-the-experts” style trainings designed to boost technical skills. We’re calling them parachute sessions because they involve our production team dropping by your institution to deliver a short training session that fits into your schedule. Sessions focus on one specific subject and can be anything from 1-5 hours long. Depending on the size of your venue, sessions will be able to accommodate between 5-10 people (but do bear in mind that the more people there are, the less hands-on it will be).

Although we encourage you to suggest your own ideas, here are some of things we could cover in our parachute sessions: Greenscreen shooting, lighting, sound recording, wireless lavalier mics, screencasting, timelapse, using the GoPro, DSLR shooting, the JVC in depth, setting up an interview, appearing in front of camera, problems with Premiere Pro.

Please include your date of choice in your email along with the subject you want covered. 

COLLABORATIONS

The CADARN production team works alongside individual academics and staff on a limited number of projects, helping them produce educational resources. The aim of these collaborations is not only to boost the amount of educational media being made, but also to train academics and staff so they can make their own resources in the future.

If you have a project and would like some help from our production team, you can submit a proposal at any time by filling out this File form and returning it to your local contact (details are on the form). Proposals will be considered as soon as possible after they come in. Projects will be selected depending on their educational merits and their feasibility, taking into account the production team’s other time commitments.
