Technical / Staging / Crew

Backstage Production & Art Direction

Students will focus on stage design, props, backdrops, makeup and costuming. Students will work the backstage components to the JDS Actors Studio Spring Plays. They will learn and assist with set painting, props, costumes and more. During the semester they will make latex masks, skull caps, learn about and practice stage make up, hand stitching and alteration technique for costume & make up design. They will also get to choose a stage production of their choice and create and build a replica of a scene.

Video Production

JDS Creative Academy is devoted to education of videographers and their extension into the digital and video production realms. JDSCA is a school designed to teach new techniques and technology that are becoming commonplace as the profession evolves.

Our focus is on providing a background in traditional videography, such as “Corporate Video,” and “Television News Production” which includes: Producing, Story Telling, Writing, Acting, Lighting, Business Management, and Video Engineering, as well as instruction in emerging fields such as “Drone Videography”, “Cinematic Video”, “Social Video” and more. This union of traditional and “new” areas of videography, results in an education in Expanded Videography.

As the need for videography continues to evolve, our aim is to keep our students on the cutting edge and provide them with a rare and highly marketable skill — knowledge! The goal of our courses are to take students to the next level and put them in position for meaningful careers in videography.
