The Advanced Film Class 2020-21

Hey Manbears,

Despite the challenges we are facing with COVID we are happy to announce that the school will be producing several Advance Films this year! This is your time to shine! If you'd like to learn more about what Advance Films are and how to sign-up feel free to watch this commercial:

Here's the link to sign-up for an interview:

And here's some more information to help you prepare.

Will or Spencer will meet with you to discuss working on an Advanced Film during 4th-6th terms! It's okay if you're uncertain on what you want to do, please still interview! Same for if you don't have a crew in mind; we will be happy to work with you if we are invested in your project. Keep in mind that production may look different this year with COVID, but we'll be doing our best to work around it to get the best products we can.

If you are already coming to either the Sketch Comedy or Music Video Labs, we can interview you in person during those times if it's more convenient!

Things to bring if you are pitching your project:

  • Resume
  • Logline
  • Script
  • Anything else that helps!

We'll be announcing which projects we'll be producing January 8th, 2021.

Hello, our wonderful EHHS students new and old! Did any of you use an external HARD DRIVE that belongs to the school this year? We are missing a handful of hard drives, and would love to get them back. The content on the drives mean so much to us!

If you've used one, or know someone who used one, anytime this school year (or last school year), and still might have it at home, in your locker, backpack, anywhere around, and keep forgetting to get it back to us, I know how easy it is to forget to bring those back.

Please return them to Josh or Will, it'd make our day! One of the hard drives was named Edgar Wright, if that helps any of you remember where he might be. We really miss Edgar. The other ones I think are labeled "Backup Copy", or "Step Larpers". Returning them would mean getting back hundreds of hours of work we've put into making cool movies to share with the world. Bringing them back would make you heroes! HEROES!!!! :) :) :)

See a Cool Movie at FILMQUEST This Weekend

FILMQUEST is a cool film festival showing fantasy and horror genre pieces! This weekend it is showing this particular film: The Faceless Man.

We met the filmmakers in L.A. this summer, and they are fantastic people, and this is a fantastic film. It is right up there with the kind of movies we love at East Hollywood, and attending festivals like this serve some great purposes. 1) They are inspiring! Watching short films made by independent artist is always a great, creativity promoting exercise. 2) You meet the filmmakers, which is super duper handy! Networking is awesome!

This film screens this Saturday, Sept. 16th, at 11am at the Covey Center in Provo (425 Center St, Provo, UT 84601).

Student prices for tickets are just $6 per screening! Nice!

Check out the trailer for THE FACELESS MAN here:
