Calling for talented and passionate filmmaking students! This April 21 – 27, OWN Academy is partnering with Cartoon Network and DC Comics to provide students an exclusive real-world experience in media production. Under the guidance of professional producers, editors, and staff, students will learn in a hands-on environment to exercise their creativity in actual projects.
OWN Academy has partnered with Cartoon Network and DC Comics to curate a full week of project-based and experiential learning. Students will not only have the opportunity to design and publish their own projects, but to glimpse the behind the scenes operations of a global media company.
At Cartoon Network/DC Comics, students will be given different project briefs to choose from. Students will be grouped in teams of 2 – 3 to brainstorm and will be encouraged to exercise their creativity and imagination either by filming their own content or edit existing content. Once the team’s video concept is approved, students will be given the opportunity to work independently. Cartoon Network professionals will guide and coach students as they develop their projects to ensure that project quality reaches publishing standards. The final projects will be published on Cartoon Network’s social media as part of students’ portfolio building.
In 2018, our students created videos under the mentorship of Cartoon Network producers and editors. Their work can be found on Cartoon Network’s YouTube page: Music Video and Mother’s Day Mashup. Last year, our partnership with Cartoon Network was also featured on SCMP Young Post.

“My daughter took the trip to Cartoon Network and she loved the hands on experience that Natalie was able to provide for her. She worked on a deadline to create a commercial that will air on social media for the Cartoon Network. Not only that, she got to pitch it to the President of the company. This was an experience that many college age students would love to have and Natalie was able to provide the real world scenario to my daughter at such a young age. OWN Network provided an amazing experience for my daughter!” – HKIS Father of 12-year-old Student Participant, Easter 2018
