Learning professional video, audio production and post-production is daunting. Even though newer technology is touted as making things simpler, technology doesn’t give you the knowledge to create professional results. So how can you learn to correctly use a pro-video camera or editing software? How do you learn to record sound in critical music, narration or on-location situations? When the results are critical, and they are in professional situations, clients will demand knowledgeable and experienced people. So how can you work and learn from professionals who can show you industry standard practices and even help you connect with an potential employer?
