Video Production

Gain the skills you’ll need to light, shoot, and record your own films, documentaries, interviews, and advertisements.  Get hands-on experience with professional equipment and software in an intimate, small-class setting.


Video Editing

All the cameras have been shut down, the lights packed away, and the actors sent home.  Now what?  In this workshop you’ll learn how to take raw footage and assemble it into a narrative, whether for short films, documentaries, interviews, promotional videos, or experimental films.


Intro to InDesign

InDesign is the industry-standard tool for a vast array of print projects, including brochures, posters, booklets, newsletters, calendars, and magazines.  Getting your feet wet with the software is an invaluable tool in any professional’s belt, whether involved in media or otherwise.


Web Design

Building your website doesn’t have to require a degree in computer science.  This WordPress-based workshop will give you the tools to construct your online presence without any hardcore coding.

Intro to Audio Production

Though visuals are the flashy, stand-out part of your film, conventional wisdom is that sound is actually more important.  By focusing on open-air recording and the production of foley, this workshop will give you the foundation you need in equipment, practice, and software to bring your audio up to snuff.
