Really, who hasn’t gone to a wedding reception and stayed until the very end just to see the amazingly crafted same-day edit by Jason Magbanua or any other revered videographer?

With all this attention put to videos, it comes as no surprise then that aside from being a medium that gets a lot of eyeballs looking, video production in Phoenix has also proven itself to become a lucrative business! So whether you’re in it for passion or profit (or really — why not both?!), fulfill your filmmaker dreams and enroll at Shoot! Practical Videography School!

Shoot! Practical Videography School is the FIRST practical videography school in the Philippines. They’re NOT a film school, per se, as they cut through the lengthy process of getting a film degree. But they DO develop storytelling, and teach best by doing — so you can bet that you’re getting LOTS of hands-on practice here!
