Nick is an experienced trainer and lecturer in both the Higher Education and Corporate sectors. He is adept at pitching workshops and lectures to both young undergraduates, and groups with industry experience. His teaching methods emphasise how to succesfully prepare for live production, with rigorous and effective planning and communication.
Nick has been a Visiting Lecturer at The University of Westminster for ten years.
He developed and taught a practically-based introduction to multi camera television production on the highly regarded Film and Television Production BA (Hons) course.
He also regularly delivers a camera scripting masterclass, on the Television Production BA (Hons) course.
Television in China is in a period of rapid change. Producers are being forced to improve production values, and create programmes which will successfully compete in a global marketplace. The China Media Centre introduces visiting Chinese professional programme makers to western development and production techniques.
Nick delivers several masterclasses each year in shooting multi camera scripted music, to delegates from state broadcaster CCTV, Shanghai Media Group, Tianjin TV and Jiangsu TV. The emphasis is on improving results through careful planning in pre-production, sympathetic camera scripting to creatively enhance a track, communication, and successful management of the rehearsal process.
JP Morgan Chase is one of the world's largest investment banks. In 2014, Nick was asked to consult, develop and deliver a bespoke training course to improve in-house AV production standards. Working closely with the bank's Executive Director, Global Technology, and the incumbent external provider of AV staff and facilities, Nick developed and delivered cost and time effective one day training seminars, including practical elements, for UK production staff, which were held at JPMC's London headquarters.
