Fourthwall Youth Studios, a filmmaking and digital media program for youth in Junior High and High School. We offer summer programming, after school programming and internships  in filmmaking, digital media and technology.

We like to think we are more like a Cast of Catalysts that will ensure you keep making it until you make it. Ignite your genius, meet new friends. Either way we will have an excellent journey together. Before you know it, you will be on your way to realizing a dream and developing the skills necessary to achieve it.


Fourthwall will be kicking off a new set of summer camps. Our 2-week award winning camps will be held at various locations around the city including Madisonville, Price Hill, Millvale and the Downtown. Please PRE-REGISTER at the link above.


Fourthwall’s mobile video studio will be on the road soon. Like many Hollywood productions, the “struggle bus” had to also go on hiatus during COVID. The mobile studio comes complete with edit suites, video production gear, its own internet access and power. If you are interested in bringing a turnkey film and digital media program to your school or community please get in touch at

Our mobile studio is made possible by the generous support of Impact 100 with a supporting grant from the Nellie Leaman Taft Foundation.
