Stanford and SkateWorks for Teen Summer Camp

Even if you don’t know an Ollie from a McTwist or Gain from Shutter Speed, Digital Media Academy’s got teens covered this summer at Stanford. We’ve teamed up with leading local retailer SkateWorks and are raffling off a board AND free spot in our upcoming Skateboarding and Filmmaking Camp for Teens.

Digital Media Academy + SkateWorks

Or if you’re an experienced boarder and have made videos in the past, you’ll be able to kickflip your vids to an entirely new level. This year’s class at Stanford is taught by taught by SoCal’s visual fx and skateboarding master Nick Guth with UCSC grad and extreme sport junkie Travis Schalfman.

As with all our camps, you have the choice to get a taste of the college life by sleeping at Stanford’s campus each night or come for five action-filled days. Regardless, you’ll wrap the week with a dynamic vid … and there’s even a rumor the Skateworks Team will showcase their gravity-defying talents in an exclusive session for the class.

But if you’re not in the Bay Area this summer, there’s no need to despair. Digital Media Academy also offers the Skateboarding and Filmmaking Camp at UCLA, UCSD, George Washington University and Harvard, while SkateWorks’ brand-name boards, decks, trucks, wheels, and apparel are available for shipment across the country from their website.

Classes are filling up, be sure to register for our raffle before June 18 !

Music Video Production and Skateboarding Summer Camp

Music Video Production and Skateboarding Summer Camp


Summer 2010 is almost upon us and I for one am truly exited to return to the University of California – UCSD campus for another round of Digital Media Academy US summer camps for kids courses. As a full time video editor, skateboarder and musician, the addition of the music video production class in the summer camp line-up has got me amped to see what this years students can come up with, both musically and visually using Final cut suite and Logic studio 9. Even if you’ve never touched an instrument, this summer camp will have you rocking like a pro.

The intro to film making class is a must for anyone who wants to get an understanding of some of the best techniques for telling stories, while leaning the ins and outs of Final Cut Pro. And as if that weren’t enough, There is my personal favorite class “Skateboarding and Film making summer camp“  This is the class that takes students on a non stop skate park tour of SoCal, where we will see local pro’s at work, well as get a chance to make a film of their summer skate adventures. If Skateboarding is your passion, this is a class I can assure you you’ll never forget…

Check out this video made by Circa shoes of their am rider Walker Ryan as he gives you the lowdown on some of the spots and skate-history that UCSD offers. Here’s the link over to Thrasher Magazine:

And here’s the actual video. 

(Note from the blog editor – this is NOT a film of Digital Media Academy summer camp!!!  This is a cool video that shows you a professional skateboarder showing you the UCSD campus… He is not wearing a helmet….  He SHOULD be wearing a helmet!  EVERYONE at Digital Media Academy summer camps SHALL wear protective gear, so no worries.  Now, editor’s note out of the way, enjoy the scenery!   Penny – the blog admin and mother of  a 13 year old that ALWAYS wears a very cool helmet while skateboarding…)

In the few months between now and July, you can catch me hosting the internet broadcast for this Years Vans Pro TecPool party, on May 22nd.
