Making Creative Use of Archive Content


With so many events cancelled and access restricted due to COVID-19, using archive has become more important than ever.

But, how can you use archive creatively to appeal to audiences on TV, radio, online and social media? What content works best and how can you make it relevant to today's viewers?

Join faculty member Mark Egan for this e-Master Class where you will learn the four-pillar framework for using archives. It will show you how to make better use of your archives by planning, storytelling, efficient workflows and effective strategy. When used correctly, archive content can be engaging, cost-effective and make you stand out from the competition. We will be focusing on creative treatments, rather than the technology in detail.
