If you’ve been thinking about a career in media production but not sure where or how to start, SON Studios might be your golden ticket.
The non-profit media production company is hosting the Introduction to Production Conference on Sunday April 15.
The one day event is open to just about anyone, including high school and college students.
The $149 cover charge might be out of reach for some but thanks to Rebecca Seitz, CEO of SON Studios, she asked several foundations throughout Southwest Florida to help foot the bill.
“Over two dozen of our 100 attendees were awarded a scholarships,” Rebecca said. “I have seven more students on a waiting list.”
Some of those students on the waiting list attends Golden Gate High, Barren Collier High School and Estero High.
Attendees will have a day filled with advice from industry professionals and what it’s like to work in the movie business.
“These department heads are from Emmy winning shows, Oscar winning films. It’s Woody Allen’s production manager from Annie Hall,” Rebecca shared.
From the conference, Rebecca hopes to find a pool of candidates to hire for the next SON Studios production.
“The conference is designed to be a genuine, authentic, open door into this industry.”
