Video Sketch Production Class Beginning in January

Arts_LaborIn a collaboration between Austin’s own Arts+Labor (a Creative Content Community) and ColdTowne Theater, this Video Sketch Production class will take the comedy student from pitch to final edit on their own 3-5 minute video short.

Students will work with industry professionals to hone their idea into a script, and then tackle the ins-and-outs of casting, location scouting, directing, post-production and other challenges of producing their own video sketch.

The class will culminate in a screening of the sketches open to friends and family, and each student will receive a copy of their digital short to share or use for their reel.



  • $124.99 with a $25 refund available after completion of post-course feedback
  • Saturdays 1:00 to 3:00 pm beginning January 11, 2014 (8 weeks)
  • Class limited to 10 students
  • Some writing experience is preferred.
