    Digital media workshops

    Our digital media workshops have high-end work stations for all kinds of digital media, from video editing to 3D graphics and music composition. All equipment and software is industry-standard, including, for example, Maya 2015, Z Brush and Protools, as well as all of the Adobe creative suite package. 

    We have high quality computer monitors for colour work, and we have many Wacom Cintiqs for use, as well as Music MIDI keyboards.

    There are four digital media workshops: 

    • Graphics
    • Video and audio editing
    • Music production
    • Multimedia. 

    Our workshops are open access with top technicians to support and train you in your work, and remain open until late in the evening. There is on-going investment in the latest equipment, so be sure that we will always have the latest equipment.
