Scribe Video Center was founded in 1982 as a place where emerging and experienced media artists could gain access to the tools and knowledge of video making and work together in a supportive environment. Scribe provides training in all aspects of film, video, and audio production, offering classes in computer-based interactive media to individuals and community organizations as well. In the three decades since its inception, Scribe has established eight ongoing programs designed to meet the needs of the general public and media artists.

This program will be presented via Zoom Webinar. On the day of the program, use this link to join:
