As mass communications and the television networks have made the transition from film to video, the demand for trained video professionals has steadily increased. Our curricula are geared for professional editors, camera and production personnel who feel that a working knowledge of the television technologies would be beneficial to entering or keeping pace with a growing video job market. All of Fox Video's programs are taught on current broadcast equipment to network specifications and expectations. Our insistence on providing a learning environment equipped with full professional hardware is what sets Fox Video apart, insuring our students of a credible educational experience.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR ALL CLASSES
Tuition per course is $2250.00 and is due in full two weeks prior to your first class.
The fee for registration is $50.00 and is non-refundable. It is applicable towards your tuition.
If you are unable to attend a class for which you have registered, you must cancel at least two weeks prior to the start of class. Your registration fee can then be applied towards a class at a future date. If you cancel later than two weeks before class you will forfeit your registration fee.
We understand that sometimes an unavoidable schedule change may cause a student to miss a session. We will be as flexible as possible and we'd appreciate as much advance notice as possible. As Fox Video is not only a school, but an active production/post-production company, very infrequently a lecture or hands-on session will have to be rescheduled. Your understanding and flexibility will also be appreciated.
Fox Video reserves the right to cancel a class due to insufficient enrollment.
