The course is currently held at ITV's Millbank Studios in London's Westminster - directly opposite the Houses of Parliament.
This famous multi-million pound media complex provides broadcast facilities of the highest standard and shares its building with the three main national news organisations - the BBC, ITN and Sky News - as well as a multitude of regional and international broadcasters.
The course is held in the main Studio 1, a digital studio with 4 widescreen cameras, lighting grid, dedicated sound-mixing booth, full production gallery and facilities, make-up room, Green Room and a Preview Theatre for reviewing recordings.
This studio has played host to a variety of programmes including The David Frost Show, ITV's The Late Debate, The South Bank Show, ITV's Seven Days, ITV's Around The House and BBC's On The Record.
Because of this, everyone from President Barack Obama to Prime Minister David Cameron, pop-band Boyzone to Oscar-winner Helen Mirren, have been interviewed in the same studio you'll be working in.
You’re thrown right in at the deep end with a day that’s almost 100% practical. It runs from 9.00am to approximately 6.30pm and a buffet lunch and refreshments throughout the day are provided.
We put a lot of effort into totally focusing on each individual participant, concentrating on their own specific wants and needs. Therefore, we have a maximum of only six clients on each course.
Your day is driven by up to nine professional coaching, technical and production staff meaning that our support team actually outnumbers the course participants so you're assured of a quality, tailored result.
The course attracts participants of all ages and backgrounds. From complete beginners to established presenters wanting some objective coaching. From celebrities looking to make a transition to presenting to CEO's needing to present their company's promotional video.
To date, individuals from more than 20 countries have made the trip to the UK to take part, sometimes recording much of their material in their native language.
We don't tend to attract - or encourage - the "I just want to be famous" brigade. Our clients have typically thought long and hard about investing in our training and most arrive at our door through personal or industry recommendation.
You’ll benefit from the exceptional technical quality that only a professional, broadcast facility can provide. In fact, your showreel’s recorded material will be directly comparable with the sort of quality you see on television.
The total amount of your recorded work will vary slightly from person to person, but expect to take away around 20 to 30 minutes worth of material on both DVD and broadcast quality DV tape.
We also run a parallel recording of your work onto our own digital tape, which is kept for several months. Therefore, if anything should happen to your precious DVD or DV once you leave us, we should be able to arrange another master copy for you.
And, if you’d like to take away your material on an additional format - e.g. Betacam SP or DigiBeta - then just contact the office and we’ll be happy to arrange it for you.
