Cat Flap Media’s training initiatives have included two audio documentaries courses for UCL’s Department of Anthropology. Along with Zillah Watson, Jane Ray has taught students the basic building blocks of radio and podcasting. Over 10 weeks, the students learn how to use recording and editing equipment as well as creative approaches to interviewing and sound design, creating 10 minute audio documentaries. Jane has been nominated for the award for Active Student Partnership which gives students the opportunity to thank a member of staff who’s committed to listening to and working with students and their representatives to improve and change education at UCL.
Jane has also organised a course in conjunction with the BFI for those wanting to learn the basics of documentary making, entitled ‘Make Your Own Documentary in Six Weeks’. The programme takes students from early development, funding and research to simple filming techniques on camera or smartphone.
