About the Course

While this course centers on equipment, I’m sure you realize we can’t really show gear “the what”, without showing “the why” and “the how”. This Equipment course will be an ever-expanding portrayal of not just gear and equipment, but gear and equipment in use. This includes various examples of equipment being properly used per manufacturer's specifications. 

When you enroll in this course, some of the videos you'll have access to, will, in fact, be actual manufacturer's own videos as they can often represent the product the best. Other videos will be original Rigging Lab Academy production work for areas where we felt the product justified a more in-depth look into “the why and the how”.
