Phase 2 Skill Labs

Get hands-on experience with professional filmmaking equipment every Friday in the Phase 2 Skill Lab!

These free sessions are open to Spy Hop students, alumni, and friends who want to learn and practice with gear, meet other young creatives, and hang out with the Phase 2 team. This is your chance to hone your creative and technical skills in a fun and supportive environment.

Take advantage of the camera and lenses, gimbal and tripods, and a suite of lighting equipment in the sound stage to experiment with different setups — from mock interviews to shot recreations and more — using people or puppets as your subjects! If audio is your thing (or you think it might be) and you want to learn or practice how to run both boom and lavalier microphones, this is the place to be.

Plus, those who participate in the Skill Lab become eligible for hire on future Phase 2 productions.

The Phase 2 Skill Lab is a free, drop-in program where all experience levels are welcome.

Come hang out with Phase 2!

Phase 2 is a collective of young creatives and industry professionals that produces high-quality media while providing supportive pathways and community for a new generation of media makers to thrive.
