    How To: Go Behind The Scenes At Specs Howard

    Posted by Abby Cook on Tue, Oct 20, 2015


    Unlike many "How To" blogs or Pinterest posts, this one is pretty easy to do. Let us explain not only how to get a behind the scenes glance of what we do here at Specs but why you should want to. 


    Why You Should Want To: Go Behind The Scenes At Specs Howard


    Just over a year ago, the developers at Periscope became fascinated by the idea of discovering the world through someone else’s eyes. What if you could see through the eyes of a protester in Ukraine? Or watch the sunrise from a hot air balloon in Cappadocia? It may sound crazy, but they wanted to build the closest thing to teleportation. While there are many ways to discover events and places, they realized there is no better way to experience a place right now than through live video. A picture may be worth a thousand words, but live video can take you someplace and show you around. (source: periscope.tv)


    Now, what does that mean for us here at Specs Howard School? Specs Howard is different from many other schools. We're a school full of creatives. From our instructors, to our students, to our faculty. We want you to learn more about us than just what's written on our website or our print pieces. We think it is important to show our students, potential students, and our community what we actually do. What a better way to show people this than through an un-filtered, un-edited, LIVE stream?


    On our Periscope we will be broadcasting from different events that we're at or hosting like our Open Houses, Graduation Ceremonies, and video shoots. We'll take you on tours of our different locations. We'll talk with our Instructors and Graduates. We may even pop into a class to see what our students are learning! So come along for the ride and get to know Specs Howard School of Media Arts from the inside. Follow the steps below so you don't miss out on a thing!
