Caps Media Summer Digital Storytelling Program
In July the popular CAPS Media Digital Storytelling program kicks off at the CAPS Media Center for students, ages 10-15. Young videographers, film makers and video storytellers get hands-on training with video cameras, audio recording equipment and computer editing software to create the stories the crew wants to tell. Registration is open for the three week-long programs scheduled July 10 – 14 (in association with Ventura Parks & Rec), July 17 – 21 and July 24 – 28. Each fun, creative and engaging program runs Monday through Friday from 9:30am to 3:30pm. The fee includes a t-shirt, use of pro gear and instruction, and a free CAPS Media membership for a year. To learn more about the Digital Storytelling program, go to www.capsmedia.org/events.
