Ermana Productions, spearheaded by Torrey Pines High School (TPHS) seniors Ivy Gong and Michelle Zhao, recently launched their 18-episode mockumentary Last Period, which follows the misadventures of five high school students during their last class period. The web series was filmed over a duration of two weeks this past summer on the TPHS and UCSD campuses.

“We’ve always felt that many of the high school comedies we’ve seen inaccurately portray the extraordinary experience of high school; the portrayals are amusing and entertaining, but not completely relatable,” shared Ivy. “We wanted to capture the struggles and successes of typical high schoolers and that was a huge impetus for the production of Last Period.” The series’ team included students from TPHS and Canyon Crest Academy, as well as other San Diego-based schools. As of late August the series is available for viewing on YouTube. For more information on Ermana Productions contact or visit
