DATV offers training classes free to our members. For folks new to DATV, we recommend our two session Beginners Production Workshop to introduce them to the basics of video production and editing. The first class concentrates on studio and field production techniques such as camera setup and operation, audio, lighting, directing and using our TriCaster production switcher. The second class will introduce participants to the Final Cut Pro editing software that’s used to edit and add graphics and special effects to video footage.
The Final Cut Pro class can be done as an online Zoom workshop as well.
In addition to our Beginner Workshop, we also offer classes for Podcasting, Production Van Training, Town Hall Meeting Room Training and Using Green Screen and Virtual Sets.
