Graduates of our programs receive a certification to use our studio’s equipment and software.
Television production is an industry where creativity meets communication. After attending our classes, you will have all the skills you need to be a part of an active community of filmmakers, actors, writers, and technicians. The opportunities are limited only by your imagination. Our training program is broken down into the following categories:
Introduction to Videography
Editing with Final Cut Pro™
Project Completion and Output
Production and Certification Classes
Ho’ike’s Certified Producer class teaches you how to produce a program in its entirety. We start you with the basics–such as the proper setup, use, and care of the camera, tripod, and audio equipment. Afterward, we show you how to use Final Cut Pro and its various features, including transitions, overlaid text, and background music.
Once you learn how to shoot and edit footage, we teach you how to prepare your work for publication. The final leg of the course teaches how to output projects to a Quicktime video file. Finally, you learn about the submission process.
Classes are scheduled by appointment. Please call our offices at (808) 246-1556 and we will be happy to register you for classes and find a time that fits your schedule.
