Apprenticeships are an incredible gateway to acquiring valuable skills and opportunities to learn in the work environment.

We’re so proud to be able to offer these things to our very own apprentices and we sat down with our three apprentices to find out what they have been up to, what they’ve learnt and their standout moments at 7video.

Animation and digital graphics apprentice – Callum

It’s great to be an apprentice within 7video. 

From talking first hand to clients, to dealing with full projects, everyone sees you as who you are rather than looking at job titles and judging ability from this, which gives me confidence to strive to do better. 

I have learnt more than I could have imagined, from editing software to learning how to lead animation projects. I feel like I am learning more every day.

For me the stand out moment has been the Christmas period at the office. Working to create our Christmas animation for our social media and creating festive content for our clients and friends, made the office a great place to work. 

Moreover, taking the lead on the 7video Christmas animation was a stand out moment for me, I’m proud of what I created with the support of my team.

 

Animation and digital graphics apprentice – Cherise

My apprenticeship is educational and fun! 

I’ve been able to work on many different projects, from going on film shoots one day to designing and animating characters the next – which is perfect for me as I want to absorb as many skills as possible.

I’ve learnt about working on different stages of animation, developing my skills in so many different types of software. 

Everyone has their own areas of expertise and experience, there’s so much I’ve learnt from everyone! 

One of the best parts is working on a live project from start to finish and being able to see my ideas, designs and animations being used by clients, as well as getting a really lovely review from them stands out for me! I’m really proud to have created some videos for The Movement Centre, based in the West Midlands, it’s a project I really enjoyed working on, alongside their team.
7video having the confidence in me to take on live projects is really encouraging.

I’m super grateful for the opportunity that I’ve been given doing an apprenticeship with 7video, and can’t wait to see where it will take me!

 

Digital marketing apprentice – Adam

You are part of the team through and through, anything you need or want to learn is just a question away, that’s what I love about being an apprentice at 7video.

I’ve been able to put my own ideas forward for how we do things, allowing so much freedom to devise plans and create content – which is amazing! 

I’ve had so many opportunities to shadow the film and animation teams, which provides me with a fantastic opportunity to learn about the production process, which is useful for how I plan my digital content. 

I don’t think I could ever choose just one stand out moment because I’ve had so many great opportunities with the team. I’ve joined the crew on filming days, attended training courses and events – every single one of those has been incredible and I’ll never forget them!
