Submissions for this form are closed.

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic we have determined that we cannot safely offer our normal slate of youth workshops this summer. Full refunds have been made. We realize that our summer offerings have been an important part of your summer plans, and we don't make the decision lightly.

We are putting together plans for a variety of short format youth workshops that are appropriate for online/remote delivery. We will have more details on June 15th. If you have any questions, please email

Archived description for next summer

Building community through media is what we do at Davis Media Access (DMA), and we make sure that starts with some of the younger members of our community. DMA has decades of experience teaching youth the basics of media production. These exciting classes teach production skills in areas such as camera operation and lighting, storyboarding and script development, sound recording and greenscreen use. DMA builds into all its curriculum critically needed media literacy training, and our workshops take place in the only HD studio in town. Participants get hands-on experience with quality equipment, work collaboratively, and share their work at the completion of the camp. Classes are taught by DMA staff and frequently assisted by students from past workshops.

Please note while the enrollment deadline is one week before each workshop, classes do fill, and early registration is encouraged.

The deadline to register for either workshop is 5 p.m. on Friday, June 5th.

KidVid Media Workshop

Participants will learn how to produce a program in DMA's HD television studio, including storyboarding, operating cameras and sound equipment, using a greenscreen, and media literacy training. Students will also work with HD field cameras, and get an introduction to the radio booth at KDRT 95.7 LP-FM, DMA's low-power community radio station. Both sessions cover the same content.
