Brighton Digital Media Academy

Partnered with the Aldridge Foundation, Latest TV was the co-founder member of the Brighton Digitial Media Academy, which delivers digital media training to 14-19 year old students.

Based at Brighton Aldridge Community Academy and Portslade Aldridge Community Academy, the BDMA works with industry tutors for students to learn work skills alongside the intensive media training. Qualified tutors from Latest TV deliver training in filmmaking, editing, post-production and journalism skills.

Brighton Television Studio Visit

1 hour studio visit, which includes a talk about Local TV and gives everyone the opportunity to try presenting in front of the green screen studio. Pupils are given the opportunity to present the news they have written (or our news on the autocue). They see how TV works, looking at the gallery and tricaster which operates the green screen studio.

Our crew can also answer questions about microphones, cameras and lighting; and how various programmes are made.

News and television production workshops

We provide workshop for a range of schools and colleges including language schools

We offer 3 hour workshops for groups of 20 students (if there are many more, we can offer day long workshops – with 20 students in the morning 9am-12pm and 20 in the afternoon 2pm- 5pm)

We work with the students to research, write and present the news and our technical and presenting crew show the students how to operate an autocue and present the news.

We can work with the teachers so there is preparation work done beforehand, and students can bring their scripts and news images and videos to put on the news.

Students can choose to write and read about local, national or international news, current affairs, sports, music and what’s on, food & drink, or research and read the weather.

Here is an example of a workshop with a group of Italian students from EC Language School (their news programme produced in 3 hours)
