TRAINING, TUITION, ADVICE AND TALKS
As well as making videos, we offer our production expertise for one-to-one, group training and team-building sessions.
Lundscapes training is given by friendly, caring, approachable, knowledgeable professionals. Input is bespoke and tailored to suit needs and abilities.
We can provide general support or more structured sessions - from an hour (our minimum) through to day-long work.
- One-to-one help - perhaps, with the aim of increasing your confidence with a domestic camcorder. We want you to be able to make better videos, and it gives us pleasure to help you!
- A talk to a group - for example, Women's Institute or the University of the Third Age (U3A)
- Advice for job-seekers looking to get in to the media, broadcasting and video production area or do a course of study in the field
- Input for a group of amateur or aspiring film-makers
- Team-bonding involving video production and role-play
Depending on your requirements, we aim for our training to be:
- relaxed, fun and interactive
- focus on 'learning by doing'
- build confidence and familiarity with production techniques and correct terminology
And in a business environment, help team-bonding and promote a team-ethic
Training / input could include:
- Assistance with participant camcorders or editing *
- Hands-on experience with Lundscapes equipment
- Making a short one or two-minute comedy drama film, using basic costumes and props
- A review of material participants have previously filmed **
- Powerpoint presentation(s)
- Input on better camerawork, sound recording and editing techniques *
- Question and answer session
- Advice on the marketing of video and web material
- Tips on better stills or mobile phone photography
* Whilst we can provide advice on editing, we cannot accommodate guests in our own suite. We can, however, provide guidance in a client's edit room or place of work
** An edited version of content recorded during training can be provided on DVD or USB pen drive within an agreed timescale, although sadly not on the day itself. However, an 'in-camera' / 'as recorded' unedited version might suffice - the team-building being the key aspect rather than technical perfection
Our rates are fair and affordable, and our input makes a great birthday, anniversary, retirement or Christmas present!
Please note, if your input requires additional pre-production or editing afterwards, there is a further cost per hour.
At our discretion, we may waive the fee for a voluntary charity or community group, such as the Women's Institute or U3A. If so, a contribution towards expenses would be much appreciated
Our costs do not include handouts, DVD discs, venue hire, lunch and drinks. In the case of location and refreshments, we normally expect the client to organise and provide these for attendees and our team member(s)
