There's no need to give up the day job while preparing for a Hollywood career as a professional film or TV editor. Video Symphony TV & Film School in Burbank now offers its Avid Professional Certificate Program as an 18-month series of evening and weekend classes and workshops, starting late June, 2008.
Designed to accommodate working professionals and students who have full-time day jobs, the Avid Professional Night Program includes 36 courses, plus hands-on practice time, and the same benefits provided in their popular 12-14-month daytime Avid Professional Program.
Initially, the Avid Professional Night Program classes will be conducted on Monday and Wednesday evenings, plus one weekend per month. The first evening sessions are scheduled to begin on June 30th, 2008. Early registration is recommended because there are limited seats available. Financial aid options are available to qualified students.
Video Symphony also announced their new "Pizza & Post" events, Tuesday evening get-togethers, open to the public, for students and film devotees interested in the professional adventures of notable directors and editors. Admission and pizza are free, but an RSVP is required. Call 818.557.7200 for the schedule. Video Symphony is located at 266 E. Magnolia Blvd. in downtown Burbank, CA. There's free indoor parking immediately behind the school.
