SPNN Training and Classes

Get started with the Intro to SPNN class which is the first Tuesday at 6PM. This class is hybrid, held via Zoom and in person. This is the first step in using SPNN resources and must be taken before any other classes at SPNN. In this class you will learn how you can utilize SPNN resources to create program you then share with the community via our channels. Register for our Intro Class here You must pre-register for this class. Staff will reach out to see if you plan to attend in person or remote so we can adequately set up for the class. This class requires masks and we will distance while in the classroom.

Technical Training
We have regular monthly classes on editing with Adobe Premiere and SPNN field gear-cameras, lights, and microphones. We also hold one-to-one classes as needed for our A7iii, portable switcher, and studio. Reach out to Theng to schedule your class. 

Our Field Camera class is the second Tuesday and Wednesday at 6PM. This class is offered in person. You do need to register in advance for this, and all of our classes. SPNN is still requiring individuals to wear masks while in the space. 

To use SPNN edit resources you will need to take the Editing Class or test out of the class. The class is in person by appointment. Email Alice at alicehu@spnn.org to arrange this one -to-one session. 

Storytelling Training
We regularly hold a series of classes on story construction, storytelling through editing, pre-production, interview skills, and other skills needed to create engaging media.
