Production Week: Lunar New Year Parade


$425 DCTV Members // $475 Non-Members

Designed for those seeking an extensive introduction to the world of digital production, this comprehensive hands-on workshop combines content from our Camera, Lighting and Audio Fundamentals workshops, and then after a dedicated session to prep, takes your new skills out into the streets!

This special Production Week culminates in filming at Chinatown’s Lunar New Year Parade, practicing shooting on the run by recording person-on-the-street interviews and adapting to changing shooting conditions! What a great opportunity to get out of the firehouse and into our neighborhood!

This is a Production workshop at the Fundamentals level.
