Forbidden Technologies PLC to train video editors in South Africa
In the pilot, Forbidden will train 150 people on its video editing platform Forscene

Forbidden Technologies PLC (LON:FBT) is to teach video editing to teachers and unemployed youths in South Africa through a pilot deal backed by the country’s government.

It is the video and tech specialist’s first contract with a public body in the country.

In the pilot, Forbidden will train 150 people on its video editing platform Forscene to meet a shortage in the public broadcast sector.

If this is a success, 150 new students are will be added every quarter with an annual licensing deal to be agreed later in the year.

Forbidden said it was an example of how it can extend the reach of Forscene, its lead product, through international intermediaries and systems integrators.

Jason Cowan, Forbidden Technologies’ business development director, said the deal had been in the pipeline for some time and he was delighted to have started the proof of concept.

“Whilst there's no guarantee that the full scope will be signed off we are extremely confident that the benefits Forscene can deliver in this project are significant."

Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams, deputy minister, said "SABC [South Afrcian Broadcasting Corporation] and MDDA [Media Development & Diversity Agency] will support the community radio sector, through the programme production initiative which will be targeting young people.

“In partnership with Forscene we are going to train unemployed youth, learners and teachers on Online Video Editing Software."
