Scope of Instruction

APPLIED LEARNING FOR NEW & ESTABLISHED CREATORS

Practical, real world knowledge that you can immediately put to use in the field 

Our technical specialists and affiliate instructors have first-hand experience working with the technology and subjects they teach. We offer unbiased, practical points of view that focus on how tools are actually used in a production environment. We understand the demands of production and impart real-world knowledge in a concise, easy to digest format.

AREAS OF SPECIALIZATION

We offer classes on a variety of subjects in five fundamental disciplines related to the tools, craft, and business of filmmaking. Each class is designed to stand on its own, although taking multiple classes in a series provides a deeper understanding of the subject.

We have partnered with some of the leading manufacturers and industry organizations to bring you highly relevant training. In many cases, we are the only authorized training partner for these workshops. Classes are often presented in a variety of formats to increase access to this training.
