No better time to try new things than in the New Year! Last year, the COVID-19 safety restrictions required us to reimagine the ways we provide media-making education and opportunities to our community. Like many others, we learned to use Zoom video conferencing tools and rearranged the structures of our classes and events to integrate with the online platform – and we were pleased to find that the circumstances provided new and exciting ways to teach classes and produce media! From video-chat interviews to at-home podcasting, online classes were the perfect motivation to refresh our traditional ideas about what a media-making class should look like.
As we enter 2021, online classes are in high demand – and we’re pleased to offer a wide range of classes! Over the next few months, we plan to roll out brand new media-making classes that will cover new territory in the ever-changing digital media landscape. We know that media-makers are no longer just videographers and sound designers. Thanks to the Internet, media-making skills and tools are so much more accessible than they were when we first opened our doors 30 years ago. For this reason, we hope to try out a wide variety of new and inventive classes that will empower our community to create and communicate in whatever way they feel comfortable – whether that be through a podcast, a webcomic, or a TikTok.
The sky is truly the limit when it comes to modern forms of media production. As your local community media center, we consider it our duty to give you every opportunity to tell YOUR story the way YOU want to tell it.
