Students from Santa Susana High School visited the Sony Pictures Studios movie back lot and had the opportunity to operate the latest in 4K cameras developed by Sony Electronics for the professional market. This exclusive soundstage is used by Sony for industry professional training, and the SSHS students were given the very same presentation and chance to shoot on gear that is just being rolled out to the movie industry now.

Of all the career industries, the Arts, Media, and Entertainment sector requires perhaps the greatest cross-disciplinary interaction because the work in this sector has a propensity to be largely project-based, requiring both independent work and interdependent skills for career success.  Careers in the Arts, Media and Entertainment sector fall into four general pathways:

Design

  • Visual and Media Arts
  • Performing Arts
  • Production and Managerial Arts
  • Game Design and Integration
