Created for Production Sound Teams

In our industry, the work is so fast paced; there is no room for errors. There is simply very little time to ``teach on set.” We are highly aware that scaffolding is an effective way for ANYONE to learn. Our courses act as a primer for ENG professionals and on union crews. Our courses will help get you up to speed faster than without them. If your new crew additions take our courses before diving in, they will be more aware, quicker to respond, and will have a better understanding of the flow of a set.
