Our various workshops equip artists with the skills necessary to access and operate EMMEDIA’s facility and equipment with competence and confidence. EMMEDIA offers a variety of workshops in digital video, audio and multimedia. We have a pool of skilled facilitators from a variety of disciplines. Within EM’s creative environment, artists develop the technical and aesthetic experience necessary to operate as an independent producer. Over the years, EMMEDIA has encouraged thousands of members to become established media artists, producers, and facilitators.
The most popular workshops are scheduled regularly but we can organize a custom class around any media arts related topic. Production and post-production workshops include practice time. For participants that obtain Producer Membership, a free afternoon or evening camera rental (i.e. half price for a one-day rental) is available for Video Production Workshop. Eight hours of practice time at the reduced rate of $5 per hour is available with a Post-Production Workshop. Members must take advantage of this offer within one month of taking the workshop. The majority of our workshops are limited to six participants to ensure that artists receive quality instruction and equipment access. Feel free to provide us with your experience level and specific interests so the classes can be geared towards your needs. Most of our workshops run only with a minimum of four registered participants.
Workshop fees are payable by cash or cheque at the time of registration. If registration is done by phone or email, the participant must drop off payment at least 7 days in advance of the workshop. A $30 admin fee will be added to any workshop fees payed on the first day of the workshop. Cancellations may be made 48 hours in advance at no charge. Any cancellation made with less than 48 hours notice will be charged at the full rate.
