Digicom Summer Screenwriting Workshop

During the first week of summer break, 10 Impact student from Indio High School along with 4 students from Shadow Hills High School participated in a 5 day screenwriting workshop lead by Digicom's Ruth Atkinson.

The workshop gave students the opportunity to explore scripts and short film narratives before beginning to develop their own concepts. The second half of the week was dedicated to having students develop their own original scripts that can be further developed and/or produced when school resumes after summer. 

In addition to learning the fundamentals of screenwriting and storytelling, the workshop helped students to build communication skills while gaining a sense of introspection and personal perspective.
