UK - Educational roadshows led by BlackTrax specialist Tom Boucher have been outlining to students the creative possibilities BlackTrax offers to live event professionals. Students have been bringing their ideas to life by using CAST’s innovative technology.
“Taking BlackTrax into an educational environment has introduced students to technology that they will come across in the workforce. It has given students the ability to create scenarios, ask questions and really get to grips with BlackTrax as a system and the numerous integration possibilities,” says Tom Boucher.
Many questions were answered, and the system was put to the test, right down to students calibrating a BlackTrax Real system themselves and learning how to get their educational wysiwyg license.
“I really enjoyed using the BlackTrax system, I thought it was intuitive and relatively easy,” says Confetti, University of Nottingham student Jamie Lawrence. “I had a lot of fun playing around and doing the testing with the system. The teaching style was excellent with relevant information. Tom was open to answering all and any questions relating to my dissertation. The visit was massively beneficial, my dissertation probably would have fallen flat on its face without it.”
The tour visited schools that deliver relevant programmes where BlackTrax experience is beneficial in preparing students in advance for their careers in live events, theatre, and broadcast.
“It was superb having BlackTrax in The Lir Academy [Dublin] working with our final year technical students. The training they received with Tom provided them with a huge opportunity to work with not only great industry professionals but also with top-of-the-line technology,” says a spokesman. “The students taking part in the training are entering the industry with a higher level of understanding of the application of this technology in the larger industry, but also within their own practice as they go out into the professional world.”
