What People Are Saying: " This intense three-day workshop kicked my existing video skills up a notch. The instructors were very knowledgeable and passionate about the craft. I really liked the all-encompassing content that had us learning top tips for shooting, recording and editing; then getting out in the field to capture footage and sound; and then incorporating it into a video package with video, still photos, audio and more.
