Youth Filmmaking Camp

Attention parents/guardians with kids ages 8-13 years old…
Learn digital media storytelling at CMAC!
Tuesday, August 1 through Friday, August 4 • 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Is your child interested in video and movie making? Then this is the perfect summer educational opportunity! CMAC’s expert staff members will guide your child through a fun and exciting four-day filmmaking camp. They will produce, direct and act in a short film developed from an original script. They’ll learn about cinematography using iPad camera kits, lighting, and editing with iMovie software.

Campers will receive a CMAC t-shirt, daily snacks, a flash drive containing their short film, and a 1-year CMAC membership. We will screen the short films for the campers, their family and friends on the last day of camp Friday, August 4. The films will also air on CMAC’s Education channel on Comcast 94 and AT&T 99. Cost: $75 per attendee. Limited to 15 attendees, ages 8-13.

We have reached capacity for this year’s youth summer camp. However, there’s the possibility that someone who has registered may cancel. If you would like to be placed on our wait-list in case of cancellations, please email Kyle Lowe at or call 559-266-2622. Thank you for your support!
