Who we are...

Originally formed two decades ago as the extracurricular arm of a small technical theatre program, TEC has grown to include over one hundred members of the Westlake High School student body. It now has a direct impact on nearly every student in the district via its behind-the-scenes technological support through aspects such as lighting, audio, and set design.

Westlake TEC Makes Hunter's Wish Come True

Hunter is a three year-old from Austin who was recently diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma. Hunter loves lights and all things Disney, so it was no surprise that he wished to go to Disney World at Christmas time for his one most heartfelt wish!  Thanks to Westlake High School and Lexus of Austin, Hunter will be able to spend time with his family away from the hospital and enjoy the holidays in style!  Hunter is most looking forward to seeing the Minions, all the Disney characters and riding every ride.


Touring ACL Live

This August, we were given a tour of the ACL Live studios, and it opened our eyes to another world of high quality live video. We were taken onto the main floor, many of us seeing the stage-and the theater itself for the first time and given the opportunity to see all of the production equipment. We were taught about the many different cameras (including the crane cameras and Mezzanine camera), and were able to ask questions about how they are generally operated and which shots are chosen during live productions. Click here to read more...
