Classes

We spend most of our time in the trenches, broadcasting from around the world. Occasionally, we are able to share what we've learned. All of our classes are taught by seasoned professionals with decades of field experience.


Studio Pass - Join us in our Studio for discussion and hands-on training. You will be using the hardware we use and learn out processes first hand. Studio Passes are limited to 20 people and include breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Online Passes - More than a single camera in the back, this pass is multi-cam HD production with shared files and Live Q&A. You will be part of the conversation at every moment with dedicated opportunities to ask questions.
