A high-intensive learning experience in Phoenix, Arizona that incorporates lessons on video, storytelling, and the art of direction. 

The Environment

The in-person training will be a day filled with Ale’s creative process - from storyboarding a concept with a client, creating a shot list specifically for video, camera settings, hands-on filming, hands-on directing, and her method for creating emotion through visuals and subject direction. A full and honest review of attendee's work, and a heartfelt, push-the-boundaries conversation full of Q&A's about this business.

The Space

Authentic and uncommonly refined, Hacienda Petac is an enchanting experience. It combines the elegance of a 17th century estate with the luxury of a world class resort, assuring the ultimate in privacy and service for your group.

The estate has 7 beautiful bedrooms on 250 acres of gardens and natural habitat. There is also an exquisite spa, nail salon, and gym pavilion. Throughout the day, families and friends tend to gravitate towards the Casa Principal with its expansive terraces, elegant living rooms, library and well-stocked bar. For other diversions, there is a wonderfully tranquil swimming pool, a well appointed games salon and walking trails.

The morning begins as coffee is presented with a light tap on your 11-foot bedroom door. For the rest of the day delicious snacks and beverages arrive as you swim, relax, work, or play in the game room, spa, or fitness center.

Days unfold seamlessly as your guests move from a book in the library, to breakfast on an outdoor terrace. From a conversation in the living room, to lunch in the dining room, and on to a round of ping-pong in the games salon. Then it’s time for a massage or a soak in the Jacuzzi. Meanwhile, your youngest guests are learning to make a piñata, or setting off on a junior archaeologist’s dig for treasure.
