For Port Townsend School District’s Spring Break period — from April 2 to April 10 — students from the high school’s Advanced Media class had the opportunity to visit the entertainment capital of America; Hollywood.
“During Spring Break, three Port Townsend High School staff members and 18 Advanced Media students traveled to Hollywood. We spent four days and three nights exploring various entities involved with the professional creation of film and television,” said David Egeler, Advanced Media teacher at the high school.
The students had a one-of-a-kind opportunity to visit numerous media facilities like Universal Studios and California Institution of the Arts, as well as enjoying plenty of Los Angeles’ tourist hotspots.
The exciting expedition lead many students to learn more about the behind-the-scenes aspects of entertainment and get to see the bustling world of Hollywood firsthand.
Some trip highlights included “tours of Lee Marvin’s Prop Heaven, a Hollywood Cinema Production Resources training program at West L.A. College — created by part time Port Townsend resident Kevin Considine — and a VIP backlot tour at Universal Studios,” Egeler said. “Students also had time to explore the historic farmer’s market in the Fairfax District, Griffith Observatory, and a hike to the top of Mount Hollywood.”
