Online Raga Labs is a music collaboration in a group of 4-6 that you can do with like-minded peers. It is a modular program designed to help you go from concept to a full-fledged professional music video.

Doing this Lab requires everyone to have a good mic at home, like the Blue Yeti or a similar condenser mic to record audio. It also needs them to have the ability to take simple, static video footage with a DSLR or a high-quality smartphone that can take HD footage.
