East Hollywood High offers a unique and powerful learning experience for students who are passionate about learning film production and related arts/media while they also prepare for college. Such an experience is created by the confluence of experience with the core curriculum, apprenticeship learning, smaller class and student body sizes, and opportunities for students to extend their education into the film production industry.
East Hollywood High is unique in that it hires film professionals to teach its film and related courses. This means that students are receiving instruction in film production from professional actors, editors, screenwriters, directors, and animators - who can teach students "how it's really done" in the industry. Aside from their industry experience, and as with their colleagues who teach in the liberal arts, our film teachers are also licensed or authorized to teach by the state of Utah. Additionally, East Hollywood teaches students with professional grade equipment. Whether it is in our two film studios, our 2D/3D animation lab, or editing lab – students are using the cameras, lights, computers, and software used by the pros.
