IPS training weekend dates announced

The Institute of Professional Sound (IPS) will hold its 2014 Annual Training Weekend at Bosworth Hall (pictured) over the weekend of 7-9 February, 2014.   This year’s event will explore the world of post-production, with a particular look at how acquisition affects post, and what post can do with original audio tracks.   Training sessions will follow the post workflow from acquisition to final dub, focusing on metadata, file formats, track-laying, foley, ADR, mixing and an exploration of what can be ‘fixed in the dub’ using some of the plug-ins and gadgets available today. Alongside the main sessions, selected manufacturers will display their wares in side rooms to allow delegates some hands-on experience.   The IPS Training Weekend also affords excellent industry networking opportunities, and a semi-formal meal on Saturday evening will feature an after-dinner guest speaker. Delegates will have the use of all the hotel’s facilities throughout the weekend, including a Spa with swimming pool.   The IPS Training Weekend is open to all IPS members at a preferential rate, while members of other professional Guilds and associations are welcome to attend and benefit from generously discounted rates. The price, which covers the cost of accommodation, seminar sessions, all meals (including evening meal with guest speaker), and access to lecture materials, is £270 for members of the IPS, and £375 for non-members (prices include VAT). Details and booking can be made at the IPS website, or the dedicated booking site: http://ipstw14.eventbrite.co.uk. Places are strictly limited.   “The IPS is committed to offering the very best training, not only to our members but also to the wider sound community”, commented IPS chairman Simon Bishop. “We continue to offer unique training events for sound technicians to gain both theoretical knowledge and hands-on experience, along with unrivalled opportunities to meet and talk to some of the country’s most experienced practitioners in their field – and this year’s Training Weekend is no exception. We are looking forward to moving the event away from the South East, and Bosworth Hall in Leicestershire is a perfect geographical fit.”   For further details, please contact Chris Maclean of the IPS Exec Committee on chris.mac01@gmail.com.   www.ips.org.uk
