Film & Photography Training
for individuals, companies, charities, higher education & tv networks
Creative Video Production Workshop
Trai originally devised this unique training programme for UK television network Channel 4, to train young film makers and spot talent. Over 1000 young people have benefitted from these workshops throughout the UK, and many have gone on to successful media careers.
Now Trai is making the same resources available to corporate clients, charities and small businesses. By equipping key staff or volunteers in the skills of video production you can produce high quality digital content without having to continually spend big on external production companies.
Here's an example of Trai's beginner technical tips on How To Film Stuff on an iPad

And we want you to be able to carry on film making when you get back to work, so we teach on smartphone, tablet and any camera equipment you have to hand.
