In the wake of COVID-19’s utter displacement of public gatherings around the world, we’re seeing businesses everywhere adapt in creative, unexpected, and quite generally exciting ways. The latest in line is the Australian Film, Television, and Radio School (AFTRS), who have moved a number of their upcoming seminars online.
Though the situation for many Australians and global citizens may seem dire at face value, one positive impact of self-isolation and social distancing practices has been a wholehearted embracing of learning, self-development, and creative focus from the home. We’re all locked in – but that hardly means the time alone needs to be wasted.
Want to expand your skillset from self-isolation? These upcoming seminars from the Australian Film, Television, and Radio School can be completed from the comfort of your own home.
Two upcoming seminars in particular – Storytelling for Business on April 1st and Deals, Rights, and Negotiation on April 2nd – are the first to be adapted to new online environments. They’ll be delivered via popular video conferencing tool Zoom; all you’ll need is a good internet connection, a computer with a camera plus microphone, and a quiet place to participate.
Storytelling for Business is focused upon delivering engaging pitches and compelling story-driven content for brands and other organisations. It covers a number of must-have skills for video producers with partnerships in mind, or for content creators working in-house to develop their employer’s image. Find out more here.
Deals, Rights, and Negotiation runs more on the rights side of the creative industries – for content creators, creatives, and media industry personnel alike. Rights have become a more complex beast than ever amongst the rise of streaming and platform-hosted content, so duck in to get ahead of the game and know where you stand. More info can be found here.
In addition to these seminars and a number of courses already available online, AFTRS are currently seeking to expand their online offerings in order to meet the challenge of the times.
