Become a DCTV Workshops Instructor

Interested in teaching our hands-on filmmaking workshops for adults in Producing, Production, and Post-Production?

About DCTV Workshops: For over 40 years, DCTV Workshops have provided people from all walks of life access to the skills they need to make media and tell their story. Currently, DCTV offers over 150 hands-on workshops each year in all aspects of digital filmmaking and media arts, from basic video production to advanced editing & motion graphics.

Whether two hours or two weeks long, all of our workshops seek to teach a wealth of information in a short amount of time, so that all of our students leave with the confidence to put their new skills into practice. Small class sizes, affordable prices, and instructors who work professionally in the industry make DCTV a one-of-a-kind training facility that offers practical knowledge to everyone, from novice to pro. Unlike other centers, we provide all curriculum, equipment, and software. All of our workshops take place on location at DCTV. Our students are adults that come from a diversity of backgrounds with varying levels of experience. Some will be absolute beginners, needing significant guidance and support, while others will be working professionals looking to pick up a new skill.

Qualifications: All applicants must be working professionals with teaching experience, able to give our students an in-depth introduction to the industry’s leading software and technology. Applicants without teaching experience will not be considered.

Benefits: In addition to an hourly rate, Instructors receive a complimentary DCTV Membership, which grants you dedicated access to the services DCTV provides, as well various discounts.

Note: We bring on Workshops Instructors on an as-needed, rolling basis. We accept applications at all times, but we often do not contact applicants until there is a need. Our instructors are hired as contractors, and invited by us to teach on a class-by-class basis as early as 6 weeks in advance and as late as one week before the workshop begins.

To Apply: Please send to workshops@dctvny.org.
