Recent Updates

In this program, students produce exemplary video documentaries which are featured on our YouTube channel. Students have been learning video production and editing at PVNet since 1995 and have gone on to work in the industry including WETA, Sony, Avid, and others.

Dreamworks & PVNet Interns

Dreamworks meeting with PVNet Interns inspires an entire group to achievement and success.


What an incredible opportunity. These students are exhilarated and energized having just presented their story board for a production idea titled, "Kitchen Katastrophe," and received high praise and suggestions for the story line.

Along with an intensely detailed tour of the production process and sneak peaks at coming attractions, these interns will never forget sitting in the official corporate meeting room where story ideas are presented, considered, and sometimes approved and completed for major movie releases.

Almost all of these interns achieved their dreams and work in that industry or closely related technologies. Here are a couple of examples:
