The iO Comedy Network is the video side of the iO Theater! Our mission is to facilitate collaboration between writers, actors, and filmmakers in making high quality comedy videos.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED
If you want to make videos for iO, there are three ways to get involved: Comedy Video Production Classes, Network Teams, and the Community Program.
Comedy Video Production Classes
Level 1: Writing Comedy Videos
Level 1 focuses on screenwriting format, writing visually, and joke heightening. If you have completed an iO Writing Program course, you can skip right to Level 2!
Level 2: Intro To Production
Level 2 focuses on film and video history, basic camera work, basic lighting, and basic sound production.
Level 3: Advanced Production
Level 3 focuses on directing picture and sound, directing actors, advanced camera work, advanced lighting, and advanced sound production.
ELECTIVE: Post Production
This course focuses on picture and sound editing, post production workflow, and basic visual effects. Students must have access to a computer and editing software.
ELECTIVE: Acting For The Camera
This course focuses on stage vs screen acting, audition techniques, and the business of acting.
These are the video house teams of iO! They’re made up of writers, actors, and filmmakers. They meet regularly with a coach and produce new videos about every six weeks. Network Team videos screen at the theater and are posted to The iO Comedy Network facebook page, which currently has over 18,000 followers.
