Participants have opportunities to explore techniques of performance, video, sound making and editing. These workshops are ideal for newcomers and experienced performers. Please get in touch with Education Coordinator of Video Pool Andy Rudolph vped@videopool.org if you have questions. Workshop cost $60.
