Janan Yakula

Formerly at Lancaster University



In the past I have produced a variety of commercial productions from an information/ instruction programme for a international science company to a short documentary on teenage pregnancy which is used in schools to inform young people on teenage issues. I have also created a title sequence in After Effects as part of my work for the Lancaster University Television Unit; the sequence was used in a production for a school detailing the work they do with children of varying degrees of disability. In 2010 I was involved in creating a Health and Wellbeing production for Preston Prison, I shared the camera operator role shooting on a Sony XDCAM EX1. In July 2011 I will be involved in shooting a short drama in Lancaster.

I am continuing to develop my skills technically and creatively to keep up with new technologies and tools that software can now provide us with at our fingertips.

Current Teaching

I Teach production to undergraduate and post-graduate students ranging from storyboarding, shooting to editing. I provide the technical know-how to students as well as providing and encouraging creativity in their work.

My main area of specialism involves post-production. I have been part-time lecturing and module leader teaching Visual FX, Editing, Colour Correction, Sound Design, DVD Menu Creation and Authoring and Title Sequence creation at the University of Central Lancashire on the BSc Media Production and Technology course. I am now based at Lancaster University full-time.

The main software applications I use includes: Final Cut Pro, Soundtrack, After Effects, DVD Studio Pro, Photoshop and Illustrator.
