The boot camps are intensive one-day events designed to get learning professionals up to speed fast.
You’ll learn the entire production process from A to Z. You’ll learn what makes engaging content and how to produce it yourself. And you’ll get a framework to improve your skills after the boot camp.

RAPID VIDEO BOOT CAMP – Coming to NYC June 2017

Learn how to make awesome training videos. This intensive one-day boot camp starts early and teaches you how to craft engaging learning content that looks professional.

RAPID AUDIO BOOT CAMP

This intensive one-day boot camp teaches participants how to record and edit a basic podcast using a microphone and their laptop computer.

Participants will learn the basics of digital audio, how to record it and tips for making their podcasts sound professional. Each participant will plan and create a podcast that features an interview, music and commentary.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The boot camps are intensive one-day experiences that take you from A to Z of the production process. We cover a lot of ground and there’s not much downtime. So come prepared to work hard! At the end of the day you will have produced either a video or audio podcast (depending on the boot camp.)

My boot camps focus on providing the framework you can follow for making awesome media content. While the workshops are about specific skills the boot camps provide a framework for you to continue developing skills after the event.

Some of my boot camps follow a Flipped Classroom model where theory is delivered as pre-class eLearning modules, to maximum class time devoted to practical exercises.
