Post production company The Farm and Jigsaw24 Media are working together on a new training scheme for entry level post production technical operators.

The Post Operators Skills Training (P.O.S.T) scheme is an intensive, two-week course which fast-tracks the progression of new starters at The Farm and develops future TV talent. It will run quarterly with the first course successfully completed in April 2022.

The scheme includes both practical and theoretical elements and is designed to give junior operators a comprehensive understanding of the technologies typically used in collaborative post production workflows, said the two companies.

The first course was designed around a long form Avid Media Composer and NEXIS workflow, including Davinci Resolve, Avid Pro Tools and Flame, while a future course will focus on short form work using Adobe Premiere Pro.

The training is hosted at Jigsaw24 Media's offices in London and presented by the company's Avid-certified instructors.

We've developed the P.O.S.T scheme to not only help fast-track the progression of our staff but to ultimately help feed the industry with well trained and well-prepared young professionals to be the next generation of TV folk, said Chris Spearman, head of operations at The Farm. We all know too well how the pandemic hit the industry hard regarding staffing, so this feels somewhat like a response to that too addressing it from the roots and looking to the future.

Jason Cowan, Jigsaw24 Media's business director added: We've designed, integrated and supported post production technology at The Farm for 24 years, but technology is nothing without skilled operators, and every participant in the post workflow from the DIT on set, to the ingest operator and edit assistant has a critical role to play. We're delighted that The Farm chose Jigsaw24 Media to help prepare the next generation of post talent with the technical skills and knowledge they need to succeed.
