We love creating, engaging, and sharing our tools. But, most of all, we love learning. We want to educate and help set best practices across the entertainment industry. To do this, we have assembled a group of recognized leaders and working professionals to form The Halp Network Entertainment Academy.


THNEA hosts workshops and events designed to advance and elevate our industry in a collaborative and engaging environment. Come learn something new and share what you know. We look forward to meeting you!

PRO Workshops

The majority of The Halp Network Entertainment Academy workshops are intended for those of all skill levels, but certain classes -- designated as PRO -- will be geared towards attendees who are frequently working or have been training for a while and are ready for the next step. PRO classes allow our instructors to focus on advanced material and concepts, knowing that every student is coming with a shared set of experience and vocabulary.

To be considered for PRO classes, please apply below. PRO status is completely free and will allow you access to our advanced classes in your field(s) of study. We expect our PROs to be professional in all arenas, so please note that PRO status may be revoked if a student displays any unprofessional behavior at THNEA offerings or otherwise.
