The need for skilled technical video professionals to operate corporate studios and produce digital content is currently outpacing the available talent pool. Companies both large and small are looking for innovative, cost-effective solutions to improve corporate communications both internally and externally. Especially, multi-location or international firms are seeking better ways to communicate effectively and efficiently with their team and clients. Small-to-midsize firms also need help navigating this space. In today’s video world, a vast array of AV options for a range of budgets exists. Innovation has moved at lighting speed since 2020 with the “work from home” initiatives and live video technology. Solving complex AV applications and integrations is the first part, secondly, is sourcing the right talent with the appropriate skill set to operate the equipment and produce the content. This is where Fultz and his team at Valere Studios step in.

Valere Studios Audio and Visual Training program involves a seven-day in-person training at their Cincinnati studio. The studio boasts the same technology that is deployed inside corporate studios across the globe. From software, hardware and the latest imaging equipment, the studio has the infrastructure for a valuable hands-on experience that is unlike any other. Trainees experience these basic fundamentals while onsite:
- Pre-production process. Where does a creative project begin, what are the resources needed and how do we achieve the results?
- Storyboarding. Learn storyboarding: the framing up the project from script to screen – for both live shows and marketing or communication videos.
- Filming in the field and/or in-studio. The trainee receives the most important hands-on experience with film and live broadcast equipment.
- The livestreaming process, live broadcast. Experience operating a live production switcher, learn encoding basics and broadcast a webinar or talk show.
- Post production process. Edit a short two-minute promotional video using Adobe’s Premiere Pro.
The training is followed up with a minimum of 50 hours of virtual training, and Valere Studios may travel at the clients request for further onsite training at corporate headquarters or branch location(s).
