Regional Workshops

Sometimes you can't send teachers to the summer workshop. So we bring Hollywood to you.

Not everyone has the time and finances to fly to Hollywood and spend a week with us making movies for the summer workshop series. But teacher training is paramount for any program’s success. So we created the next best thing… we come to you.

Something for everyone

Two regional workshops to choose from

Teacher Training

Teachers are the backbone of any great program. Make sure you are ready.​

Student Workshop

Get your students off on the right foot by hosting a classroom workshop.​

Teacher Training

Give your teachers the experience and confidence they need

We realized early on that any filmmaking or video production class is only as good as their instructor. We intend to give those teachers a safety net so they cannot fail. All we ask is that they are passionate about the craft and the rest we can manage.


This workshop offers an overview of how Hollywood production works, a lighting tutorial, and an in-depth look at how to implement the Sneak On The Lot website into their classrooms. By the time we’re done their students are all set up and the teachers are completely prepared for the year.
In addition to receiving valuable training, teachers will receive 8 hours of in-service credit for their participation in this workshop.

During the setup of a successful filmmaking/video production class, it is important to know that you’re building on a secure foundation.
