TV Santa Barbara offers classes to the community that will give you the knowledge, understanding, and wisdom to make media that matters. Our training approach is a community-based model that encourages hands-on courses, practical skills, affordable tuition, small class sizes, and real-world knowledge-based instructors.

The classes we teach are the core fundamentals of video production to enable you to create dynamic community content. We start with the principal elements of studio, field, editing, and podcasting which we call production essentials.
