One of our Media Training sessions at Murlough House, Co Down, Northern Ireland.
Media Training and Course Creation
We provide ‘media training’ courses in partnership’ with Gullion Media. Our most basic media course gives training in ‘recording oral history’. This will prepare participants for recording audio interviews on location and it also teaches the basics of editing.
Media Training courses already available off the shelf range from practical use of cameras or sound equipment to achieve better results, to accredited courses for those who desire to follow a career in media and require professional qualifications.
In addition, we can offer the production of training courses for clients on any subject matter where they (the clients) have specialist knowledge and want to teach others via their own on line courses.
We’ll be happy to tailor training to suit the needs of your organisation and look after the technical and creative aspects of the course production, allowing you to package on-line courses under your own brand. We’re already officially recognised as an Open College Network NI Centre.
Need to tell stories online?
Part of the package we can now offer in addition to straight forward video production, are skills and expertise in storytelling using 2d or 3d illustrations. Below are a few samples of illustrations we’ve produced. The 2-d sketches have been designed so that they are created quickly and cost-effectively, without the need to employ an army of artists. Illustrations like these can be effective in a teaching environment or for sharing individuals’ stories, especially where anonymity is required.
Need more detail? The illustrations below were created for a medical training application which required the highest technical standards.
Educational projects in developing countries. (Partners wanted)
With the right partners, both George and I would love to use our skills and expertise applied with technology, to help educational projects in developing countries. Whether it’s media training, general education, health, personal or spiritual development, etc., it would be great to harness technology to help develop those who have so much potential but often little opportunity to get the educational training that could set them up for a much improved standard of living.
Because video display equipment doesn’t need moving parts anymore and a whole series of programmes can be stored on a tiny media card, teaching and training opportunities exist today via video, that were impossible just a few years ago. Even if Internet access isn’t available, LCD screens can house media cards and can now be weather-proofed and vandal-proofed so that they can operate in almost any environment. Even the lack of electricity is no longer a barrier since solar power has advanced so much. Where there’s a will, there’s now a way to bring knowledge and ‘digital inclusion’ to the remotest parts of the world. We’re looking forward to our first project of this nature that will ‘make a difference’.

My latest project as of October 2017 is an Internet Radio station which I set up for Friends In The West and Music For Life - the parent body of The African Children's Choir. It's currently in 'test' mode. You can listen live by clicking on the player below or access the site at www.growafrica.network
