Q: After requests from our many customers and contacts throughout the industry I set about the task of writing a training video production handbook.

After 10,000 words it's now written, and going through proofing stages.

It'll be available free at a rate of 2 chapters a week commencing next week,and be part of our Resources.

If you're interested in training video production whether as a client or a video producer, hopefully you'll find something useful, better still usable contained within it.

To get appetites whetted, here are the contents of the Training Video Production Handbook.
