Thomasville-  A new program through the Independent Film Channel could help Thomasville High School students better understand English. 

I.F.C. and Mediacom Communications donated five video cameras to Thomasville High School. The cameras will be used by students in the new film school to increase their understanding and passion for English literature.

"It will give you a hands on opportunity to put this new knowledge into use and help you understand things like theme, and symbolism and imagery kind of in a visual way before you apply it to literature," explained Evie Stewart, a Thomasville High School English Teacher to her students.  

Students will learn about screen writing, film production and critique. Students will also be encouraged to make their own film interpretations of literature.
