These Media Academy courses listed above will offer certifications for both Basic Field Camera and Multi-Field Camera Production workshops. Once these 4 courses are completed, students will be required to attend a live public school event to crew, film, and produce together..

As a Media Academy member, you are eligible to receive certification by taking our additional general member courses offered at CMCM, including the Basic Studio Production and Final Cut Pro X Editing workshops. We encourage our students to take every class to ensure the full spectrum of our educational program.

Please note the Media Academy youth classes will be attended exclusively by students, unless if adult supervision is required. Adults can register and sign up for all the other courses on an individual basis.

Register for Media Academy membership on our membership page. Please check the website for future Media Academy workshop dates in 2020.
