Entertainment & Music

For this workshop, we will have a literal backstage tour of MB Studios, covering a wide array of careers in the entertainment industry. Our guide, Diana Oropeza will begin by giving us a tour of the studios and introducing us some of the tradespeople at MBS who design sets, fulfill the vast electric and power requirements, as well as assemble and work the lighting for the sound stages. We’ll then head into a sound editing booth to see how it works, then on to learn about the CGI used in Avatar and visit that soundstage. Finally, we will have a personal presentation by our guest speaker, Tom Sturges and will discuss the issue of music piracy and artist compensation in the era of downloadable MP3 files.
