Able Media

Able Media is the digital visual element of Able Radio. Our work includes video production, photography and animation. Driven by industry professionals we empower others through training to take on all elements of production. For some this has meant life changing opportunities. As a social enterprise we also undertake a wide range of productions within local authorities, housing associations and the third sector.

With an enviable track record in production our team work across all sectors from broadcast to training and also corporate. Much of our work is centred on hard to reach communities and enabling others to produce their own work. We have comprehensive facilities in-house to cater for any production requirement including green screen, multi-camera studio sets and edit suites. By having equipment and personnel in house we do not rely on cross-hire and freelancers thus we can meet your specific budget. Much of our work is confidential as we deal with sensitive issues on behalf of clients. All the team hold both CRB checks and appropriate qualifications dealing with children and vulnerable adults. Clients include local authorities, housing associations, universities, youth groups, schools and charities.

We also provide a person centred programme for other individuals from a variety of backgrounds and across all age groups.

Able Music was formed from the merger of Able Radio and “Urban Media Academy”. Able Music empowers hard to reach young people providing self confidence, self esteem and communication skills. The project now works with disadvantaged and disabled people from a wide variety of backgrounds. Participants in the service, even those with no prior musical experience are quickly making their own music using computer sampling and vocals. Those with more experience can move on to playing instruments such as guitar, bass guitar and drums. Through use of the latest technological equipment (JamPod), different students in a group can even practise entirely different things. The leaders are professional musicians and regularly work with groups covering genres from country and western to Dubstep. Able Music is also able to offer private tuition, band rehearsal space and coaching for emerging artists. For more information about Able Media click here
