Make Your Media have Impact!

Get the skills to create stories that have impact on the community. SPNN offers small class sizes and committed educators. We work with non-profits to create custom training sessions, educational facilities to provide digital labortories and in-depth training, and individuals to create media that engages the community. 

Young, old, or in-between SPNN has workshops in all aspects of pre-production, production, post-prodcution, marketing, and other specialty classes.

SPNN's goal is to provide you with the training you need to communicate using media technology. Members create media for distribution on our channels, our website and other media outlets.  We also provide special media programs for youth.  Please check out our schedule of upcoming classes. To register for our classes or find out more information about our classes email us or call us at 651.298.8908.
