American High Movie Production Studio

“American High,” the former school turned movie production studio by Jeremy Garelick has been an inspiration to me for several years. If I have the opportunity to work with them someday, I’ll be sure to take a better photo of the building (you can’t always choose what time of day you take a picture, hence the cones and the shadow over part of the name) to replace this one.
