Welcome to YouTube, I'm sure you've heard of it. In this class, we'll be focusing on the content creator side. Just like your favorite YouTuber, we will make videos and learn the process of posting them online onto Geek Forest's new YouTube Channel! We can film short movies, do funny how-to videos, make advice videos, create animation using iPads, and even record video games for the channel! We will learn some basic techniques for filming movies; how to edit them together; how to title your video and describe it for people to easily find it; and how to animate for YouTube. This is an experimental and fun beginner class for all skill levels.

Dungeons & Dragons: Ways and Wardens
DM: Matt Rubin
In the realm of Siyez, the path of the adventurer is quite a noble one. For reasons far beyond the understanding of most mortals, when the right group of the right individuals comes together to act together for a proper cause, they will draw the attention of a being known as a Warden - an extra-planar entity that serves as a mix of a guardian, a retainer, and an impartial judge. Once watched over by a Warden, the now-greenhorn adventurers traditionally set off on journeys untold once they get their footing, in groups known as Troupes. However, a malicious presence lurks on the horizon. With threats of invasion from dark forces slowly evolving from mere rumors into realistic possibilities, the people of Siyez can only hope that its many Troupes can band together to keep them safe.
Ways and Wardens is a homebrewed campaign for Wizards of the Coast's Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition that takes place in a high-magic, high-fantasy, "Noblebright" setting. The campaign is built to be accessible and fun for everyone from veteran players to newcomers.
