Did You Know?

Need a new way to promote your organization?

Hollywood Eagles, a new film organization, is  available to shoot promotional or informational videos for organizations.  If any organization is interested in creating a video, the Hollywood team will collaborate with you on your project by assigning a team of filmmakers, screen-writers, and producers who will make the project happen from start to finish. This is an excellent way to get the word out about your club in an interesting way (you can share the video on Facebook or at the the Student Involvement Fair) while helping the Eagles get the practice they need and want. Interested clubs should contact Eddie Mele, President, at edmele@me.com.
