Our consultancy service can support your digital media work in ways to suit your organisation.
We aim not only to address your requirements, but also to equip your staff with the tools and skills to take projects of this nature forward in future, allowing you to become increasingly self-sufficient.
We believe that training is most effective when participants are able to consolidate their knowledge and apply their skills directly. For this reason we tailor training to the specific needs of your staff and work within your live projects to provide mentoring right where it's needed. Once training is complete, we provide a package of after-care where our experts remain on hand for staff to follow up with queries.
In addition to training, we can provide you with specialist support from experienced consultants to address specific issues. If you'd prefer to outsource, we can undertake projects on your behalf.
We offer three consultancy packages – Media Assist (staff development), Media Produce (outsourced support) and Media Consult (specialist assistance).
Media Assist is a combination of hands-on training and mentoring tailored to the needs of your organisation. We work at the heart of your live projects providing support in areas such as scripting and post-production. The training doesn't stop when the workshop is over; staff can still access expert advice as they begin to apply what they have learnt.
We go beyond providing expertise and support – we pass our knowledge on to your staff. In turn your team members are able to apply their newfound skills directly to the task in hand. This increases the in-house capabilities of your organisation, making you more self-reliant and reducing the need to outsource in future.
Typically the cost of Media Assist equates to outsourcing a single project. This represents excellent value for money, particularly when undertaking multiple production activities on a limited budget.
This pre-purchased package of training and mentoring can be provided onsite at your organisation and remotely through communication tools such as Skype.
From screen-casting to podcasts, film to branding idents, we have the skills to plan, produce and deliver your project however big or small. We can also support and advise you on areas such as good practice and effective story-telling to ensure that your project has the right impact and production quality.
Media Produce can be applied to any part of the production cycle. So, if you have already shot your film but need post-production or branding we will still be able to help you.
We can supply consultants with expertise in a wide range of areas:
- Teaching and Learning: identifying the most effective ways of using digital media to deliver your teaching and learning objectives
- Digitisation: workflow review, standards, quality, metadata schema, purchasing decisions for hardware and software, and managing content
- In-house media production, including hardware and software requirements, workflow, standards and quality assurance.
- Uptake of new media: developing a plan to increase the amount of digital media you use in your online teaching and learning resources
