Avid is aiming to inspire the next generation of the media industry with a special free event in London on September 9th.
The Avid Learning Summit is designed to inspire, educate and increase the flow of new video and audio editorial talent into the industry, said the company.
It will include speakers from across the Avid Community Association as well as offering career advice, professional networking and training.
Bryan Castle Jr, senior director of global learning partnerships at Avid, said: “We’re seeing a perfect storm of challenges in media and entertainment: higher-than-ever demand for content, an ongoing gap in skills, and a decline in the industry’s ability to attract young people to produce and edit content – and Avid is committed to being part of the solution.
“Our Learning Summit in London is designed to attract students, empower educators, and engage professionals, unlocking more ways to help create a deep talent pool, while building technical aptitude, confident creative expression, and a path forward together.”
