Recently, Tinley Park High School students interested in acting, directing, or producing, had a unique experience.  David Reyes and Emilio Morrone, the creators of Forget Ellis Entertainment Company, spoke to the students about what it takes to produce short films.  Students were able to learn about the process from the very start, including what film school is like to the completion of a project, and how to submit a film to a competition.  Students saw a trailer of Forget Ellis’ newest film, Bloodlines, which is set to be submitted for competition this January, and learned about how the company is using Indiegogo to fund their competition submissions.  As a special surprise, the Tinley Park Student Council submitted a donation of $500 to Forget Ellis to help with their current film.  With this donation, Tinley Park High School will become one of the Executive Producers for the film on IMDb.  The students learned so much from Mr. Reyes and Mr. Morrone and the school is extremely thankful that they took the time to speak with our students.
