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

Stacks Image 343
Shine On, Chicago! is a mobile production classroom designed to teach young adults (and students of all ages!) about the technologies, production process and creativity 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 upcoming Half-Day/Hands-On Workshops today!
