Beginning this month and running through the summer, the Odyssey Program at Cleveland State University‘s (CSU) School of Film & Media Arts is inspiring a new generation of creative talent with courses for high school students interested in learning filmmaking.
The program offers immersive in-person one- and three-week summer camps including some residential experiences for young film fans of all skill levels.
The Odyssey Program ranges from one-day Saturday workshops to immersive one- and three-week summer camps covering a variety of filmmaking topics.
The program, which is situated at the CSU School of Film & Media Arts’ state-of-the-art facilities, offers a project-based, hands-on curriculum taught by industry professionals and seasoned educators.
Special guest lectures, site visits, and practical learning in real-world media contexts allow students to go behind the scenes and understand how the film industry operates.
Outside of class, residential Odyssey summer students receive a taste of college life in CSU’s Euclid Commons residence hall, where they participate in scheduled trips and events to learn about Cleveland’s diverse cultural attractions.
The Andrews Foundation donated grant funding in December 2021 to pay for one week of the Odyssey residential program for four qualified Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD) students who exhibit financial need each summer.
Beginning in February, applications (which include a brief essay and a letter of recommendation) will be available at www.csufilmodyssey.com, with a March 31 deadline.
