Train as a professional

The work 2 day session is intended to give students an introductory understanding to Television broadcast and film. Beginning with an overview of understanding the software, the class will develop through workshop; demonstration, lecture, and performance. The first three days will be divided into three portionsā€ presentation, workshop, and performance; the fourth day will be devoted to review of the compositional process and finished project. Because each student hears and sees differently, evaluating the performance will teach students to broaden their ears & eyes and listen & look in new ways. That is why we have 8-10 students per workshop. It gives a more intimate one on one relationship with the student and instructor.
