Welcome to Post Super's Picture & Sound Deliverables Course!
This Independent Learning Course was originally developed and delivered as a collaboration between Post-Super.com - a resource for Post Supervisors, Ravensbourne University London - a creative industries’ focussed media and design university and Pat Horridge at VET Training. The course is designed to teach Post Production managers of all types, (both freelance & in house) about Picture and Sound Deliverables for HETV & Film
Who is the training for?
Post Production Managers, Producers, Supervisors & Coordinators are often from a wide variety of backgrounds, there can be gaps in our baseline knowledge or initial training and technical advancements we may have missed for whatever reason. These shortfalls in our training have in the past contributed not only to a lack of confidence dealing with Post Production but also to mistakes in workflows that have cost us all time, effort and money to fix. The two independent learning courses that Post Super will now offer from the 1st June 2021 are designed to address these gaps and provide an easy, straightforward explanation of the post production process, gently taking the student from the start of the post production process to the end and filling in all of those holes in their knowledge.
This approach does two things... First, for the new recruit, the courses will give them a great base line from which to start, it will allow them to understand what everyone is doing on the team/working towards and they can be a more productive member of the team from the off. Secondly, for experienced managers who have a good working knowledge of the industry/deliverables already, the courses will solidify their existing experience and gives that person the confidence in their own ability when not only planning & executing workflows but also to budget and schedule them further down the line (knowing that they do indeed know what they are talking about!)
Don't just take our word for it...
I did the Post Super Picture and Sound Deliverables Course in April this year as having worked in post for over 25 years I felt it was time to update my technical knowledge. I joined the course not knowing what to expect, my background is more admin than technical. It was very professional, and the tutors were extremely experienced and knowledgeable, at every point checking the attendees understood what had been discussed and if there we any question. I had a couple, and they were answered in a way I was able to absorb. I look forward to joining future courses, they are incredibly beneficial whatever level you work at.

The Post Super Picture & Sound Deliverables Course was a great way to refresh and advance my knowledge of the Post process. It was both informative and interesting, broken down into seminars with extra video content to watch in my own time, along with PDFs and links to help me advance my understanding of Post Production. It gave me a better understanding of certain processes and confirmed my understanding of aspects of Post Production making me a more informed and confident Post Production Supervisor. I highly recommend the course and look forward to taking part in future courses to continue my education of Post Production.

Facility Post Manager - Completed course March 2021
I did both the Post Super Picture & Sound Deliverables Course & The Workflow Course and I found it very useful to get an overview for the whole post process. There were some areas of Post I was confident on prior to this, and some areas, mainly the technical side, I was not so sure on.
The way Gemma & Pat run the webinars / lectures, helps string it all together, so you gain knowledge in the areas you are unsure of whilst seeing how that slots into the bits you already know about. Sometimes it can be very abstract and difficult to see how things fit into one another and these courses have been very useful in laying that out clearly.
I very much liked having the two parts of the courses. This meant that at any one time it was not too overwhelming on each section, and I did not feel too bombarded with information. I could go away, digest what I'd seen, then come back for the next session.
I would like to do any further courses that come up as these are a great resource and absolutely vital for people coming into Post, they've helped me build up my confidence in speaking about the more technical side of post.
I have already been using some of my new knowledge in practise, discussing the proxy media and daily workflow!
