KTS Academy and Freebrough join forces

Ekts-freebroughvery Wednesday and Thursday Alex White, Media Technician and Daniel Watson, Apprentice (a former student from Post 16@Freebrough) are working closely with the staff and students from KTS Academy situated on St Margarets Way, Brotton.

The students and staff are transported to Post 16@Freebrough, where they have the chance to use some of the newest and best equipment for creating media i.e. film, animation and a multi-camera equipment setup.

The students are learning to use Adobe Photoshop at the moment and they will then experiment with Adobe Flash and Premiere Pro. One of their projects will involve creating media based on stop motion and chroma key. By the end of the year the students will be able to showcase their work in a movie created by themselves.

“This is a great opportunity to help others from outside the Academy and I can’t wait to see the end results. The students are really keen to learn the different software we have available and can’t wait to start doing animation using flash and stop motion.” – Alex White
