Why choose Mt. SAC?
INDUSTRY-CONNECTED FACULTY: All of our professors are working industry professionals. Each semester other industry professionals are invited as guest lecturers to provide their behind-the-scenes look at the production field.
IN-DEPTH LEARNING: The classes combine lecture with hands-on training using the same equipment and software found in major studios and television production companies. Students will learn the three basic types of production: single-camera film style, multi-camera TV studio, multi-camera sports. In addition, students explore every stage of production and post-production, from screenwriting to editing and visual effects. Specialty courses in reality show production, audio production and film history are also offered.
WORK EXPERIENCE: Our students intern at the top TV stations in Southern California along with major television networks and stations and film production and post-production companies. Industry professionals often call us looking for interns and entry-level job candidates based on their past great experiences with our students.
