Technical Direction Company (TDC) has announced a partnership with the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA), which will see TDC provide expertise and support to the next generation of Australia’s artists, technical theatre designers and practitioners.
Through this partnership, TDC will give NIDA students access to training and performance technology including LED screens, large-scale projections, videos and broadcast camera systems.
Michael Hassett, managing director, TDC, said: ”As one of Australia’s largest suppliers of video technology solutions the company is honoured to partner with NIDA and looks forward to working with the staff and students to provide technical knowledge and industry-readiness.”
The collaboration will see TDC provide specialist consultation and support on video technology, specifically advances in projection, media servers, and LED technology.
“We believe our investment in NIDA will achieve this and more as the students graduate and become the next generation of creative leaders in Australia and abroad.”
Graham Henstock, head of technical theatre and stage management at NIDA, commented: “In supplying assistance across classwork, assessable projects and NIDA’s full-scale student productions, TDC is giving students the opportunity to flex their creative muscles, experiment with high performance equipment and, importantly, gain vital industry experience.”
