  • Studio Production

    SAT 10/28 @ 1 PM

    If you're planning to (or are curious to) make a show using the VCAM studio, this workshop will teach you and/or your technical director (i.e. a friend you bring to run the booth while you perform for the camera) what our studio and control room are capable of and how to use them.

    Learn how to set up and switch shots, create and manipulate graphics, key-in backgrounds, roll-in media from the Internet or other external sources, operate the studio cameras, use the intercom system to talk to your camera operators, and more.

    Instructor: Eric Herz-O'Brien

  • Orientation

    SAT 10/7 or 10/21 @ 11 AM (choose one)

    This is step one! This class will certify you to borrow most VCAM gear, use the studio, start a show, and to take all our other workshops!

    Orientation takes about half an hour to an hour, we'll tell you about our policies and some of the things you can do at VCAM, we'll take a tour of the Media Factory, and fill out some paperwork. —That's it! Then you're certified!

    Please bring a photo ID and make sure you live or work in our service area.

    Instructor: Eric Herz-O'Brien

    Walk-ins welcome.

  • Edit Suite Certification

    SAT 10/14 or 10/28 @ 11 AM (choose one)

    Certification to use VCAM edit suites, with Premiere, After Effects, Final Cut, color critical monitors, and more.

    We'll cover the essentials of media management, media backups, and using the VCAM SAN, fundamental Premiere tools and navigation, plus potential next steps to learn the ins-and-outs of editing.
