TRACY BARON Lights, camera, action are three words that encapsulate a large part of Tracy's time in converting ideas to self-learning packages. While many of us believe that making a video is simply a matter of holding the camera and shooting, the reality is much different. Tracy is behind the camera, but also ensures that the lighting and sound levels are maintained. Once the material is captured, the time consuming task of editing and creating a finished product starts. Often reducing many hours of filming into a concise ‘package' that is easy to understand and provides valuable training to aged care facilities throughout Australia.
In addition to the Self Learning Packages, Tracy has also completed several promotional videos for facilities, which highlight and showcase their homes. In the past year she has been involved in co-ordinating the Living Memories Project together with the Technology School of the Future, which has seen school children getting to know residents and filming their stories and memories.
