Teens: DMA Studios: Film Production
Real-World Professional Film and Media Production Experience
This revolutionary two-week program matches actual clients with student production teams to create professional commercials and short films designed to sell the client’s product in real-world markets. The traditional classroom is left behind as team members work, learn and produce a product under the guidance of industry professionals.
The DMA Studio team is responsible for all aspects of the production including: client relations, financial planning, scheduling, story development, location production, audio & video effects, editing, marketing and distribution strategy. Team members are fully immersed in an unforgettable learning experience while producing real-world results.
DMA Studios was developed by filmmaking and media professionals and employs learning models inspired by the design thinking and immersion approach practiced at the Institute of Design at Stanford, on board The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus© and other professional studios. Each DMA Studio session works on creating a new project (with a new client)—allowing students full reign.
