Did you know?
We recently outfitted MNN’s facilities with state-of-the-art media production equipment. This once-in-a-decade upgrade means our producers now have access to the most up-to-date media production equipment to create their programs. It also means that producers who have previously been certified in both Studio Production and Express Studio Production will need to take recertification classes to produce programs independently.
An important note about our workshops
We are excited about our new equipment and to train our current and new producers. As we transition to the new equipment, demand for our workshops is extremely high, and there are waiting lists for our certifications classes and workshops. Please visit the FAQ section of our website for more information on our waiting list policy. We look forward to welcoming you to MNN and appreciate your patience!
These courses aim to upgrade previously certified MNN producers on the new equipment and systems. Upon sucessful completion of the recertification courses, producers can access the equipment to produce programming independently.
In these hands-on courses students learn basic media and production skills. Members that successfully complete these courses can use MNN’s facilities to produce their own programming to air on MNN’s channels.
