What Stage 32 Next Level Education Offers

  • Next Level Classes – Next Level Classes are longer, live courses formatted in a college lecture hall style. Most classes run about 2 hours and are fully interactive, covering a 2 to 6 week period. Although these are live classes, if you cannot make a class, that’s no problem. All classes are made available On-Demand within a day or so of completion.

    From time to time, we offer 8-week Next Level Labs. Our labs are limited to 20 people and include one-on-one time with the instructor.

  • On-Demand Next Level Webinars and Classes – All of our Next Level Education (with the exception of labs) is available for purchase On-Demand at any time, and can be viewed immediately. Much like when attending a live event, when you purchase On-Demand Next Level Education, you have unlimited access to the material for a full year!

The teachers are seasoned professionals that graciously devote their time to teaching the newbie and even experienced folk how to get to the next level creatively and business wise. Anyone I've recommended to the classes agree. Keep it up!"

"Thank you RB for making education a priority, valuable and accessible to the community on Stage 32. To have the opportunity to learn from someone who functions in the real business of show business is AMAZING. Hearing the lectures right from the horse's mouth has resulted in several ah-ha moments that I never got out of a book. Who better to learn the craft from, than the experienced folks who live and breathe it every day. I highly recommend these classes to beginners and veterans alike!"

A Letter From Our Founder/CEO

RB on education

When I first conceived of Stage 32, my wish was to bring education to all film, television and theater creatives regardless of skill or geography. All creatives, no matter what their discipline, deserve the best tools and knowledge to help them hone their craft and increase their odds of success.

In the fall of 2013, we launched our Next Level Education series. Our aim was to bring in top industry educators and offer a variety of educational offerings at affordable prices. To date, we work with over 300 accomplished educators across all disciplines and our prices are amongst the lowest in the field.

Thousands of Stage 32 members have signed up for our Next Level Education. I'm overwhelmingly pleased to announce that we have a 97% satisfaction rate and that 91% of all those who have taken one webinar, class or a lab with us, say that they would take another. Both of these numbers are head and shoulders above industry averages.

Of all the resources and features the Stage 32 network has to offer, it's our Next Level Education of which I'm most proud. My team and I look forward to continuing to help more creatives realize their dreams through our instructive and inspirational offerings.

Richard "RB" Botto, Founder/CEO, Stage 32
