Producing videos encompasses consideration of many aspects of communication. Some are the selection of subject to be presented, the capabilities of available equipment and, in the current market, non-linear video editing (computer software) skills. Making commercial-quality movies and video programs requires even further knowledge of these creative possibilities.
As technology advances and prices fall into more affordable ranges, video presentations are becoming more popular in many professions. Some include: teaching, government, traditional photography, real estate, marketing, medicine, and the ministry. Even if you’re only taking home videos, this program can help enhance your skills.

Get professional hands-on training in digital videography from our experienced filmmaking instructors and gain the skills needed for your own film project. Beginners and experienced filmmakers alike are welcome.
