VINTEN BROADCAST have donated two Vision camera tripods, each worth around £2,000 to the Faculty of Creative Media and Performing Arts at West Suffolk College, Bury St Edmunds.
Ray Robertson, Head of School of Media, said: "This gives students a chance to work with professional equipment of a quality which we could never have afforded to buy. These professional systems offer a very high degree of stability and control for a perfectly steady picture."
Peter Harman, Training Manager at Vinten Broadcast, is a former student at West Suffolk College, having studied Mechanical & Production Engineering there in the 1970s then, ten years later when his career with Vinten took a different turn, he took an Institute of Quality Assurance (IQA) diploma.
It is part of his role as Training Manager to form links with those colleges and universities throughout the UK which are providing quality training for students intending to work in the media industry. Mr Harman says he would definitely count West Suffolk College amongst the best small media schools.
Harman said: "I am very impressed by the college's Media department and their very positive attitude. We were very happy to donate these systems. In the longer term, I hope we will be able to think of something more permanent - some way of getting involved in the course."
Students undertake a variety of projects, from filming the video element of an ambitious multi-media student drama production, ‘Today Is Gone’, to creating three-minute crime dramas, mock-up adverts or short documentary films on social issues. (CD)
