FOCAL are planning a series of online monthly workshops for members and non-members across a range of topics with industry professionals who share their experience and knowledge. Full list of up and coming workshop and dates are available on our Workshop & Seminar Page
As we have continued to deal with the continued Covid-19 pandemic, FOCAL’s first panel discussed about a unique opportunity to find out how the industry is coping. You would be able to gain additional information on the best way to organise your material as well as new approaches of working in these uncertain times. Our panel of speakers covered areas such as supplying/delivering viewing and technical material, dealing with transfers, budgets and what timescales should be taken into consideration when seeking content.
