PROJECT

Overview

Santa Ana High School opened in 1889 as the first high school in Orange County. After 128 years, SAHS developed many pathways for educational success.  Several years ago, the campus began working with the Latino Film Institute and Mr. Olmos’ Youth Cinema Project.  The program brings industry professionals to the schools to work with the students studying Screenwriting, Editing, Broadcasting and Special Effects.  The program at SAHS was flourishing and a desire to create a specific identity for the program culminated in the naming of the program as the Edward James Olmos School for Film and Cinematic Arts.
