The Department of Radio-Television-Film (RTF) at The University of Texas (UT) at Austin offers summer film production programs for 7th-12th graders. Taught by some of the best filmmakers in Austin, our summer media camps take place on the UT campus, in the same building where the famous "Austin City Limits" television show was filmed for over 25 years.

What previous campers and parents have to say:

“This was an awesome experience. Being with other peers that had the same level of interest was especially enjoyable.”

“[My son] really enjoyed this camp! You guys are awesome!” 

“The camp was great! [My daughter] has enjoyed sharing her camp video with her friends.”

“My instructor was incredibly nice and helpful.”

“Ben [motion graphics instructor] was fantastic. He had a lot of information, and he was great at imparting it. He also has a great sense of humor and was really good at sitting down and giving everyone one-on-one instructions if they needed it.”
