If you want to videotape events in the community (“in the field”), craft a documentary, or create a music video, you’ll want to check out our field production resources. The Media Center’s training and equipment rental policies support developing and established video producers alike. We help you shape your message and distribute it.
One on One Training
For anyone who wants to use our portable equipment, we offer a short one-on-one video training class to insure you are ready to get the most out of our cameras, tripods and any other basic equipment you want to rent from us. The cost is $45/hour and usually it requires one hour. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a tutorial. Upon completion, you’ll be ready to use our equipment.

Zoom In covers producing, storytelling, camera operations, audio, lighting, editing with iMOVIE 13, creating an electronic file and sharing to Youtube.
For ZOOM IN grads who want the support of a community to hone their skills, you can join the Zoom In Video Production Collaborative with access to professional mentors. “Zoomers” crew for one another’s shoots, share tips and tricks and enjoy social events tailored to their interests.
For new editors, Zoom In covers iMOVIE 13, but we also offer a stand alone FINAL CUT X workshop.
