PNW students earn scriptwriting awards

Five Purdue University Northwest (PNW) students will receive first-place awards for their scriptwriting at the Broadcast Education Association’s Festival of Media Arts convention in Las Vegas April 24 and 25. 

The students won Best of Festival and first-place awards for their script in the student category based on the Netflix television show The Witcher – The Bard’s Ballad.

Students Lucas-Mario Dieguez, Jesus Huerta, Dan Oliszewicz, Chelsey Rayne and Carlos Reyes were led by Ken Bronowski, continuing lecturer, in a scriptwriting course.

“These five students are natural storytellers,” he said. “The verbal and visual dialogue was clear and descriptive throughout. When I finished the last sentence, I wanted to know what would happen next, and that’s always a great sign that I’m holding something skillfully crafted: a solid story. I knew then that this was storytelling at a very high level.”
