Shine On, Chicago! is a mobile production classroom designed to teach teens the basics of video production, while creating awareness of the careers available in the television and film industry.

Throughout the year, we offer half-day, 1, 2, and 3-day production & post-production workshops, plus 1-week and 2-week after school and summer boot camp classes. Check out our list of Summer Production Workshops below.

Our programs teach everything from operating HD cameras and lighting for green screen to how to edit a digital story in Final Cut Pro X. Classes sizes are small and very hands-on, with plenty of one-on-one instruction in both video and photography.
