Middle school is often a critical juncture in the course of a student’s engagement in their education. As stated by the Washington Post (2012) “[t]his is the perfect time to shape adolescent idealism and their growing interest in the wide world.” Curently we are serving over 100 middle school students in the DIGICOM After School Digital Filmmaking Clubs. In 2013-2014, the program began with two middle school clubs at James Workman and Raymond Cree Middle Schools. in 2014-15, two additional middle schools were added - Nellie Coffman and Painted Hills Middle Schools.
DIGICOM After School Digital Filmmaking Clubs
The DIGICOM After School Digital Filmmaking Clubs are designed to provide students with the opportunity to spend concentrated time to “find their stories” and receive the individualized attention to develop their storytelling and moviemaking skills. DIGICOM supports the clubs with the necessary funds to pay the teacher advisors and to provide equipment, including cameras, computers, software, and peripherals.
