TELOS tonight was a smashing success!  It was so much fun, and we're so proud of all the nominees and the winners, and we're so grateful to the supportive friends and family that attended.

As promised, TELOS will be online for those unable to attend.  We're so sorry we had to limit our numbers, due to Covid, and we're grateful for your understanding.

Spencer and Will are feverishly cutting together the show to put things up online, but it is taking longer than we thought - and quite frankly - we're tired.  Hahaha!

We're still at the school editing, but it won't be ready for tonight.  I AM SO SORRY.  But the show will be up in the next day or two.

Thanks so much for understanding!!!!!

In the mean time, you can watch the nominated videos - they are great!  Here's a link to 'em:

 May 26th is Telos!  The theme:  A Night in the Woods.

Here's the dealio, because of Covid, only the nominees and their three guests can attend in person, but later that night (probably around 8:30pm [SEE UPDATE BELOW]), on East Hollywood's Youtube page, the whole show will be up!

See the details below.  And if you're a nominee, bring your own blankets or camping chairs!  See you there.

UPDATE:  The online version WILL NOT BE UP on the night of Telos, we're just too busy, too tired, and have a lot going on with the end of the school year upon us.  We're currently working hard at it, it will be done in the next few days!

TELOS 2021

Telos is happening!  

Due to the pandemic, sadly we won't be at the Tower Theater, instead we'll just be meeting in East Hollywood's studio!  We are limiting the number of people inside the studio to those who have been nominated.  Nominees can invite up to three people to join them.  Masks are required.

For the rest of you all, do not fret!  We'll put it up on Youtube that same evening.  Keep checking the East Hollywood High Youtube page that night.  We expect the ceremony to be up at approx. 8:30pm.

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.
