Right-brain creativity is left-brain tech savvy.

This class offers the unique opportunity to continue to develop your digital media production skills. It includes script writing, directing, digital cinematography, lighting, editing and more. This advanced class is perfect for those who have already dabbled in digital filmmaking (or even those who have attained substantial mastery already) and for those who have completed the basic Art of Video Production class and want to go further. But even students who come with minimal preparatory work can make good progress and learn important skills.

The central goal of Video Production is to have students leave with a quality digital media portfolio. Video Production participants will be use professional quality cameras in the field and in the studio. This class strives to challenge students to reach new levels of knowledge and technical skill that prepare the student for an entry-level to intermediate production position in TV, Motion Pictures or Digital Media. Hollywood is calling. Will you take the call?
