What is Spot Training for broadcasters?

In the world of body-building, Spot Training means working your weak points to develop them. The keyword in this type of broadcast training is Workflow. It spans across all the programs you use, with the tailor-made objective of facilitating and optimizing your specific productions. This might involve automating repetitive tasks through the creation of scripts or templates; or simply fine-tuning specific software skills for more polished results. Every broadcast professional has the task of continually hoaning new skills, and with a busy schedule, it's easy for gaps to accumulate in one's knowledge-base. A few hours of Spot Training TM might suffice to pump up the workflow again.

What's available?

Spot Training TM can help your editors, graphists, animators, technical staff and producers. We can also automate and streamline a 360 degree delivery to new media platforms. Services include contextual and in-depth training in APPLE, AVID and ADOBE software. We assist with migrations to new software platforms, such as Final Cut Pro 7 to ProX, Adobe Premiere or AVID. We can also propose you some excellent Motion Graphic solutions for a fast-turnover broadcast environment. For a free consultation, call Spot Training TM on 04 20 976 792 or send us an EMAIL detailing your needs.

How much does it cost?

If you want training in a particular program, we have a PRICE LIST for that, but the real Spot Training TM is by nature, bespoke, and therefore tailored to your entire working environment. It will vary according to the size of your installation and complexity of your workflows. The Spot Trainer or SPOT OPERATOR is extremely flexible, and can negotiate her presense, services and support over long, short or intermittent periods.

Where do you get it?

You don't need to go anywhere. Spot Training TM comes to you, and is carried out on the spot ! It adapts entirely to your needs, and can include education, consultancy or assistance with challenging production tasks. Of course The Spot Operator not only teaches it but does it!

Which broadcasters have used Spot Training?

Cathy Vogan trained and supported the ABC staff nationwide in 2007-2008, on behalf of SUPPORT PARTNERS and APPLE Australia. She has since assisted Disney Pictures, MTV, SBS, 7, 9, TEN, FOXTEL, Fairfax Media, The Wiggles and Animal Logic. As a broadcast trainer, she also worked for DIGISTOR from 2013 to 2015. Besides broadcast, her background is in media arts, and she has over 20 years of teaching experience in universities and film schools in France, Germany and Australia.

Is Spot Training only for broadcast professionals?

Heavens no! For many years, Cathy has trained and mentored students of all ages - who win awards! - and she holds a current Blue Card for working safely with children.
She herself is an award-winning media-artist, an academic since 1989 and of course, a broadcast boffin - but kids just tend to find her 'practically perfect in every way'...
