Digital media is one of the world’s main communication tools, making Media Arts an essential part of a well-rounded education for students of all stripes. The workforce’s next generation needs an understanding of how to effectively convey a message through narrative and documentary video production, a skill-set that's becoming as necessary as writing and language arts.

Professional film and commercial Producers and Directors will lead a one-day workshop with Trident Technical College film faculty focusing on these skills, geared especially for teachers, media specialists, and others involved in education. The seminar will examine the process of production from screenwriting to shooting to editing and sound design, using case studies and interactive content. Leaving educators and others across the state with a firm hold on how to most effectively and professionally create production projects, and better equipped to teach and present those aptitudes.

Each participant will receive a certificate of completion, including documentation of seat hours and content to qualify the seminar as recertification training. (Participants will be responsible for securing approval of these hours toward recertification within their individual district’s policies.)

The workshop is free and open to the public. Space is limited and registration is required. Email Sarah Fralin at to register and for more information. A preference for registration will be given to South Carolina educators and staff of other organizations who work with K-12 students, such as media centers and arts centers.
