CCM's week-long intensive production training


• Learn what a video production class can’t teach you

• Discover what you can’t on your own

• Hands-on practical training and experience

• Turn raw talent into real story-telling skills

H.O.M.E. is where your story begins! 


Upcoming program dates for 2016 are listed below:

  • June 11th through 18th.
  • July 16th through 23rd.

At the Hands On Media Experience, you will be taking part in interactive hands-on sessions in ideas, storytelling, writing, lighting, cinematography, editing, graphics, and more. You will be part of a team that creates a short film.

Those who are interested in acting will have a separate breakout session, “Acting for the Camera,” and may appear in the short film.

Learn from the Pros

Executive Director Doug Rittenhouse, who has more than thirty years of experience in the Entertainment Industry and has won several Emmys, will lead the way while the entire CCM staff who make outstanding Film, Television, and New Media will guide your every step.

You will be trained by industry professionals who produce live events, and who have worked at NBC, CBS, Fox, and VH1, and the team who created the music videos for Newsboy’s “God’s Not Dead” and Casting Crown’s “Just Another Birthday.”
