On Friday March 6, DIGICOM is proud to be organizing and sponsoring, SIDESHOW, a film and photography Master Class for Cathedral City High School Digital Arts and Technology Academy (DATA) students being offered by Michael Childers and Taylor Sherrill in their studio on Perez Road.  Approximately 30 high school students, staff from Cathedral City High School, and members of the DIGICOM faculty will participate. 
 The DATA students will be given instruction on the techniques of filming and photographing runway models, dancers and choreography, still life set ups - including action elements, and other "studio oriented” magazine layout and advertising set-ups in four different studios.  The students will be involved in a project structured to imitate a real life experience with respect to the production of the work. Their work will be reviewed as if it would be turned into the actual advertising agency. Michael Childers and Taylor Sherill will instruct and critique the students in the creative process as well as their finished work.
This is an opportunty for our students to learn from the best in the field. Michael Childers, one of the authors of Icons and Legends: The Photographs of Michael Childers, is a renowned and highly respected film, dance, theater, and fine arts photographer woking in the industry for 40 years.
