AUDIO AND VIDEO PRODUCTION
Learning Audio and Video Production
Location: San Quentin State Prison
TLM’s Digital Audio Production (DAP) course begins with an overview of several audio production careers, and then covers the fundamentals of sound and hearing, recording equipment, and signal flow. After several weeks of training on the ins and outs of audio signal processing, students put their skills and knowledge to the test in the creation of six full-scale music mixing and broadcast-style productions. Students use AVID Pro Tools, the industry-standard software for editing and mixing digital audio. DAP takes 6 months to complete.
In TLM’s Video Editing and Post-Production (VEP) course, students learn the tools and techniques necessary for a career in multimedia post-production. Following along a typical production cycle, each cohort learns through hands-on analysis of shooting scripts, storyboards, camera reports, and more. Students apply these studies into producing multiple portfolio projects, assembling raw footage, editing & mixing soundtracks, animating visual effects, and creating custom color looks from scratch. Using industry-standard software, DaVinci Resolve, students utilize post-production skills across a series of short projects that replicate practices and client requests relevant to the creative workforce. VEP takes 6 months to complete.

What are the infrastructure & personnel requirements?
- 18 – 25 student workstations
- Minimum power requirements and outlets
- Dedicated Internet connection to classroom
- Internet compatible projector and screen, audio speakers and microphone
- Minimum of 30 hours per week for student classroom lab time
What are the technical and infrastructure requirements? How do you maintain security?
The Last Mile plans to operate an integrated system that delivers educational content to incarcerated persons inside multiple secure prison facilities and allows access for administrative oversight and updates while maintaining strict security protocols.
One of the top concerns addressed is the strict requirement that program participants are not permitted access to the internet. This system is designed to create a securely sandboxed area that delivers an Internet-like experience to locally support the learning management platform.
Each state has different requirements and resources available to source funding. In general, a combination of private funds by corporate sponsors, charitable foundations, and state funds through grants are the most viable funding options.How long does it take to implement a TLM program?
The timeline differs in each state and facility due to various needs, requirements, and space allocation. Six months is the minimum lead time expected to launch TLM in a new facility.

TLM Programs Across the Country
Through Next Chapter, our partnership with Slack, The Kellogg Foundation and FreeAmerica, we are building a year-long apprenticeship program to train and mentor graduates from The Last Mile — and in doing so, we hope to create a blueprint that other companies will use to train and hire talented people who have been incarcerated.
