What is included in a Content Day?
Every Content Day includes:
- A full “Mill Session” in the Carole Nash Hall (see above for more information)
- Half a day to produce any video or photography you need for social media promotion and/or your website. This can be done at any location within 30 minutes drive of Carole Nash Hall.
- Photography throughout the day to document the process (providing behind-the-scenes photos, ideal for social media!) as well as any formal photography you would like, for example portraits
- There will be a “secondary camera” rolling throughout the day to capture behind-the-scenes footage. It works really well for producing short videos to tell the story of your Content Day, which can be produced in a personal ‘vlog’ style, or a more formal documentary format

With our Content Days, we want to ensure you have many months of valuable digital media to promote yourself with. Therefore, we will have multiple pre-production meetings with you (via Skype or in person where possible) to discuss how we can make the most of your day. All of the content we create will be to help drive your career growth. Therefore, learning about what you want to achieve over the next few years will be really important in our planning process for the day.
It’s a fun and collaborative project which will provide you with media to marketing yourself far into the future.
