STUDENT & ENTERTAINMENT COMMUNITY EVENTS @ VIDEO SYMPHONY
Video Symphony is about a lot more than just showing up to your video editing courses, making the most of Adobe classes, or learning about sound design. Yes, those things are all very important for our focus on producing career-ready graduates, but Video Symphony is also a school and a community. So we host, sponsor, and encourage a number of student and entertainment events to give everyone at VS a chance to relax, blow off steam, and network with their peers in a fun environment.
These are some of our regular or recurring events that students enjoy.
Pizza & Post
VS started this speaker series to give students another way to gain exposure to the industry and to encourage networking between students and industry professionals. This very popular event happens on the last Tuesday night of every month, bringing tons of students and accomplished professionals from the world of post production together to share pizza and learn about working in the industry. After the speaking portion there is a question-and-answer session to allow students to engage with speakers and get more info about their experiences and insights
We have had a range of big names including award-winning film and TV editors, renowned sound designers, music directors, and visual effects wizards attend Pizza & Post, giving students a rare chance to hang out, interact with, and get to know these industry pros. Some of our famous guests have included Mike Sale, editor of The Hangover 2, Matt Chesse, editor of Quantam of Solace, Tonight Show editor Matthew Gossin, Emmy Award-winning editor Lugh Powers, TV director John Putch, Russian film editor Lala Zabolotskaya-Carter, VP of Post Production at Fox Television Studios Sandy Berman, and Oscar Winning film editor Alan Heim.
