City of Glasgow College is delighted to work with post-production specialist 422 in response to a digital skill gap recognised at a national level and specifically in the TV industry where different workflows and formats conspire to cause anxiety across the world of production and post-production. 422 are a full-service post-production company based in Glasgow providing a comprehensive range of facilities and creative services for television, film and advertising.

Led by City of Glasgow College’s qualified and experienced lecturer Dave Burns with all-important input from 422’s Harry Jacobs. Dave continues to balance a career in digital video with a part-time teaching commitment. Harry is the Houdini of formats at 422 and there is no one better placed to outline this fast-changing world.
