AT THE CENTER FOR CREATIVE MEDIA, YOU LEARN FROM THE PROS!

It starts with the Executive Director and Founder — Doug Rittenhouse, but it doesn’t stop there. We have extraordinarily talented staffers heading up every area in CCM.

 

All of our department heads have an impressive list of credits that qualify them to lead you to your dreams.

The Director of Photography leading the way on set may have recently spearheaded a music video for Casting Crowns. The Producer over the project you are on may be responsible for making sure a weekly television series is on the air. The Motion Graphics Designer who is in charge of creative design may have been responsible for an entire website or interactive elements for a nationwide live event tour. The Editor training you to be an Edit Assist may have cut a short film that was part of a major release in theaters nationwide.

The CCM “live in” Professional Encounters are without compare. And they are a major part of the real-world, hands-on experience that separates CCM from any other filmmaking training out there.

 

But it doesn’t stop there! Check out our Professional Encounters to discover who else you’ll be getting training from.
