Often described as “The Class That Has the Most Fun at Texas School”, the Video Production Class has become a tradition the entire school looks forward to every year. You’ll spend the week with two of the top videographers in the country as they produce the infamous “School Video.”


If you are serious about making money and want to do it while working at one of the coolest jobs around, this class is a must for you. Learn from two instructors, each with a proven and repetitive success record.
Course topics include:


  • Basic and advanced camera techniques on traditional Video Cameras and using DSLR cameras for video
  • Non-linear editing skills on Macintosh computers
  • Lighting and sound for video
  • Computer graphics
  • Wedding, Industrial, and Corporate video ideas


This fun, informative hands on course has been designed for anyone interested in increasing their production skills with video and is intended for the beginner. Billy and Mitch will demonstrate over the course of the week a “script-to-screen” class project that will be produced to expose students to all aspects of video production. The hours are long but the results are worth it.


“Photographers take pictures . . . our students tell stories.”


Although not required, you are welcome to bring your own camera and/or computer editing system so that you may shoot and edit alongside the instructors.
