These intensive, fast-track courses, presented by the Faculty of Arts, Law and Social Sciences, range from two to five days in length.  Class sizes are deliberately limited in order to maximize student participation and benefit and are led by teachers who are industry experts and leaders from their sectors.

Caroline Hyde of Anglia Ruskin University explains why the courses have been launched to people from the Cambridge area:

“Anglia Ruskin University is working at the forefront of new technology in film, television and music.”

“These short course have been specifically devised to introduce new skills and to give participants an in-depth understanding of the vital tools and software packages that are the industry standard. The courses can either sharpen the skills of those already within the sector or act as a ‘taster’ course for those who are not yet involved – but would like to get a foothold within a particular subject.”

“Small classes will ensure that the candidates come away from the course with a wealth of knowledge and expertise to use in whichever way they choose.”

Courses include Making Your Own Game 3-7 September; Final Cut Pro Editing Fundamentals 5-7 September; Maya 3D Fundamentals 11-14 September; Shooting and Preparation for Blue/Green Screen

12-14 September and Logic Pro Fundamentals 13-15 September.

Teachers include Barnaby Green, who has worked on games such as Final Fantasy and Sims 2; Adam Garstone a picture and sound editor; Chris Joyce who was head of content at games giant Jagex; and Julio D’Escrivan, an internal composer of music and sound design.

These Anglia Ruskin University courses have been designed by FDMX, the Film and Digital Media Exchange www.fdmx.co.uk
