ARLINGTON, Va. (WUSA) -- Students are creating award winning Public Service Announcements, story boarding and building cutting edge 3D graphics in High school. How Cool is that?
The digital media course at the Arlington Career center is open to three area high school and the classes fill up quickly.
Yorktown High School senior Charlotte Pence was the creative force behind last years award winning PSA on the importance of recycling plastic bags.
She helped write the script, and story board the scenes for the camera crew. Pence says the course at ACC is helping her get a long way toward her goal of going to college for film.
"This class really prepares me for that, technically and getting you to think creatively and how to tell them effectively"
Students at the Arlington Career Center also get chance to learn flash animation, shooting video, editing, audio even Anchoring a newscast.
Pretty Cool huh?
