VEC Benefits From Technology Grant
VEC now has access to state of the art adapted equipment that allows our students to make their own short films. The specially adapted filming equipment was purchased thanks to a grant by Awards for All. The grant also allowed students to take part in two training workshops where they learned how to use the digital cameras and how to edit footage. The new equipment can be used by students in wheelchairs independently, as the cameras are attached to the wheelchair by a ‘’flexi’’ metal arm and the students can control the camera with a switch that can be operated by hand, head or foot. Brighton based film company Fruit Media conducted the training workshops. The new equipment will also be used by students at Livability’s two other colleges, Nash College in Bromley and Hinwick Hall College in Wellingborough, as well as young people from a range of otherLivability projects.
