Developed specifically for the secondary and higher education markets, the First Light library contains over 400 craft-specific titles, covering film and video production, radio and television broadcasting, editing, media studies, writing, costuming, stagecraft for the theatre and many more topics for media arts courses. First Light provides the unique concept of media training and career skills, teaching usable job skills to students and professionals. It provides students with the kind of specialized training and industrial knowledge resources that help school districts make the most use of their technical resources, especially at the secondary level. Whether it’s for an introductory media class or a graduate level film course, there’s a First Light series that can elevate students curriculum to the next level.

Our programming also has great applicability in career clusters, high school tech/media classes and drama writing. It is used as tutorial (one on one) and classroom lecture based instructional aids. We work both with librarians for reference material, collection development specialists and the teaching faculties for direct use of our materials in their lesson plans and for use by students directly. Our prime focus is to get strong material into the hands of instructors to educate the next generation of media specialists.
