Shine On, Chicago! – The First Mobile Video & Photo Classroom

Stacks Image 343
Shine On, Chicago! is the "first-of-its-kind" mobile production classroom built to teach young adults (and students of all ages!) about the video technologies, production process and creative skills necessary to tell digital stories. We offer 1, 2, and 3-day production/post-production workshops, plus 1-week and 2-week after school and summer boot camp classes.

You will learn the basics of HD camera operations, green screen lighting techniques and how to edit a digital story in Final Cut Pro X in small classes that are hands-on, real-world and with plenty of one-on-one instruction!

Check out our calendar of events for upcoming classes, and enroll in one of our $99 Half-Day/Hands-On Workshops today!
