The members of the training team were Mr. Choi Ki Hong, the head trainer who formerly belonged to Korean Broadcast System (KBS); Assistant Trainer Mr. Yoon Hee Jin, cameraman at KBS and Ms. Joanne Kim, AVN Project Officer as the translator.

Participants were required to produce and perform a video presentation that included the effects and transitions as taught by the trainer during the five day course. The contents and the lengths of the video were left to be decided by the individuals. The outcome of the presentation was impressive, with many of the participants being able to apply the skills attained during the workshop to their work.

The general feedback on the workshop was positive, with room to improve on workshop facilities and efficiency of content delivery. According to the feedback survey, the overall satisfaction score averaged 9.3 out of 10.
