For many years, people in the industry have been bemoaning the lack of hands-on experience provided to the next generation who enter our workforce - in comparison to the 20 years that came before. Gone are the first days of getting thrown in at the deep end; being on set, running between meetings, observing sessions in studios. The realities of remote working and leaner budgets for the advertising industry meant that when the cost-effective option of people working from home reared its head, it was welcomed with open arms. But has this fuelled an even faster decline in the availability of hands-on-experience? What does that do for growth and progression of young teams and for the continuous professional development of the seniors amongst us? Quite a lot actually.
This year, hearing that agency production teams, creatives and film directors from across London have been dropping in to expand their team’s working knowledge of audio post production at Jungle Studios, the LBB team got in on the action and had a session for our full editorial team. Jungle have for some time been running CPD accredited workshops for people of all skill levels in our industry and also in schools free of charge**. One of the huge benefits of getting hands-on training in this somewhat technical area, is really to give creatives, producers and directors an edge on their creative work in a highly competitive space.
And rather than writing about it, we thought, it's best to hear about it for yourself. Listen as LBB COO Phoebe Siggins and features writer Tara McKerr share their experience of the workshops and get the lowdown from Jungle’s sound designers (and workshop leaders) Stuart Allen-Hynd and Sean Mahoney about why the sessions were created and how to get your team signed up…
