The Centre for Creative Media is launching their new training programme, Film Workshops, at the Novas Contemporary Urban Centre (CUC) in Liverpool, commencing this February.
These intensive Film & HD Workshops in digital media technology, designed to develop the craft of storytelling, have been created for reporters, journalists, emerging & mid-career filmmakers. The ongoing advancement of digital media technologies has led to a mounting demand for hands-on training at all levels, for those just entering the profession, as well as mid-career and seasoned pros who need to get up to speed on the latest technology. In addition to technical training, media professionals need to learn how to use the latest technology more creatively, to become effective storytellers and communicators. Film Workshops will address these issues, offering one-week workshops to help mid-career pros advance their careers as well as help those individuals wishing to change career paths or to enter the new storytelling media as artists, craftspeople or technicians.
The media is changing rapidly as newspapers move online, as the Internet becomes a forceful vehicle delivering entertainment, news and commerce. Reporters and journalists, advertising and marketing producers are now required to tell their stories through the digital online mediums as well as the traditional print media. This requires a knowledge of and ability to combine filmmaking, multi-media, photography, sound and music, print, with sound and graphic design and the use of new software to tell stories. The traditional roles are breaking down as the new media professionals are emerging.
Film Workshops will offer one-week courses in media technology and storytelling starting 15th February. The first offering is an 'HDV Digital Camera Workshop' with basic cinematic storytelling. This will be followed by a one-week 'HD Digital Production Workshop' and then a two-week intensive titled 'The New HD Digital Journalist Workshop' for reporters, photojournalists, editors, scientists and other media professionals who want to master digital video storytelling for television, online newspapers and other platforms.

Film Workshops is a joint venture between USA-based Workshops International, a global training and creative institution and The Centre for Creative Media, a new UK-based idea and content development organization. Media Workshops International's Founder and CEO is David Lyman, founder and CEO for 34 years of The Maine Photographic Film & TV Workshops, in the
USA, a world famous centre for media artists and producers.
The Centre for Creative Media is under the leadership of UK filmmaker, Kate Robinson. Kate Robinson said: "People are veering away from the traditional methods of accessing news and media and are now consuming this information through new digital mediums such as online video streaming. As a result, journalists are required to not only write a story but also produce films and photographs without any formal training, and this is where our workshops can really help. Media professionals and people working in the film and TV industry will benefit greatly from the hands-on approach taken in the workshops. Our workshop programmes combine state-of-the-art technical training and creativity to satisfy real commercial objectives".
David Lyman said: "We offer a unique approach to technical and creative training. Our research tells us this level of professional and creative training is not being offered anywhere in Europe. We have been teaching the magic of film for over 30 years and are excited about bringing this level of career education to Liverpool".
