Video is among the most powerful and most popular storytelling tools. Every month, more than 200 BILLION videos are viewed on personal and professional websites, video channels, social media sites and blogs.

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, audio and more. ”
