On June 20th, Hybrid Studios in Santa Ana hosted a group of high school students through Vital Link team and Santiago Canyon College to discuss careers in the world of audio and video production. After being given a tour of the facility's recording studios and soundstage, students spoke with Craig "Burnie" Burns of Applebox Network and Burnie's Grip and Lighting about different career paths within the industry. They were also brought onto one of Burnie's profession grip trucks and given a recording demo in Hybrid's Studio A. Following the demo, students took part in a Q&A with Hybrid's Lead Engineer, Josh Brooks.
"It's always refreshing to bring groups of young people into the studio," said Hybrid Manager Mike Miller, "For kids looking into different career paths, we try to remove some of the mystery of what actually happens in recording studios and/or professional soundstages like Hybrid. They assume that it's all fun all the time – and it is fun – but there's a lot of hard work and dedication that comes along with that. I hope we were able to show the students both sides of that coin."
Santiago Canyon College is a State of California award-winning community college and offers a very effective Business and Career Education curriculum to their students. These students and some grads will soon be seeking entry-level or internship positions pursuant to their upcoming careers. Vital Link's mission is to help students and grads explore, discover and connect to meaningful careers by coordinating activities such as site tours to local businesses for various Orange County schools.
