Ambassador College is a former college ran by the Worldwide Church of God from 1947 until 1990. Since closing, it's been an abandoned space used for TV shows and movies or as an interesting place for Pasadena residents to walk around and explore.
In 1966, Peter J. Holdstock designed two additions to the school, the Fine Arts Building (the one being destroyed in the short) and its sibling across from it, the Science Hall. With it's distinct honeycomb exterior and classrooms retaining the same style chairs and interiors since 1966, it was a beautiful relic of a bygone era. Of course, for city developers, nostalgia and memories can't make money for the city of Pasadena, so unfortunately, the property was sold to a development group which will replace the buildings with new condominiums.
For a few months, I wanted to make a (slightly) narrative short based around the buildings, but when I was told they were being torn down, I felt my heart sink. To capture these buildings I loved so much, I crossed over a fence into the construction site and filmed the demolition of the Fine Arts Building and parts of the interior and surrounding area by the Science Hall, hiding from the few construction workers on site.
