Focus Program Visits LA Film School

Our Focus Program's Journalism and Media cohort explored the LA Recording and Film Schools in Hollywood. At the LA Recording School we saw a wide variety of large-scale sound recording and editing boards on which their students gain certification. The Foley effects room allows recording engineers to re-create footsteps on a variety of surfaces, as well as re-record most sounds you hear in films. At the LA Film School we explored their sound stage complete with indoor and outdoor sets...
We watched a class assembling lighting equipment in a green-screen stage, and visited their full surround-sound theater used for film exhibitions and screenings. It was a thorough exposure to their 3-year degree program, and what it's like to attend a film school.
