Teen Film Summit

Location: CMA

CMA is hosting a Teen Film Summit on February 19 for teens, aged 13- 19.

Hakim Callwood, Ted Cadillac and Donte Woods-Spikes will each join us for artists talks. Artists will host a Q & A with teens, where they share how film and media play a role with their creative pursuits.

Hakim Callwood is a Columbus raised artist who specializes in illustration, design, teaching, and painting. He is currently traveling, hosting, and creating for Tour de Mural.
Tour de Mural was inspired by a local mural tour completed by Hakim in 2019. The goal of Tour de Mural is to travel the United States and beyond, painting murals, connecting with artists and the communities they reside in, and sharing their stories.

Ted Cadillac is a video producer from Pittsburgh, PA and Ohio University alum. Starting in 2012, Ted spent 4 years traveling with music acts ranging from Fly Union to Juicy J and Wiz Khalifa, documenting their careers in YouTube web series. Now based in Columbus, OH, Ted just released the debut music video for Stranger Things star Caleb McGlaughlin titled “Neighborhood,” and is prepping for the 2nd season of his collaborative documentary “Tour De Mural” with artist Hakim Callwood.
