School Video Creators Group

Creating video content for schools can be rewarding work, but it can also be really isolating. Our founder & CEO Jake Sturgis saw the need to create a network of people who are passionate about education and want to get better at their craft, while helping others grow and learn.
Jake started creating video content for education in 2002, working in a school district just outside of Minneapolis. He felt like he was on an island sometimes. No one else really understood the “video world” he was working in. Jake also felt like his skills were starting to deteriorate because he didn’t have anyone giving him constructive feedback or someone creative to rub shoulders with.
The group will have several meetings each year in the Twin Cities area, however people from across the world are invited to participate.
