California State University Channel Islands unveiled a new production and post-production studio facility, which will expand the university’s offerings in entertainment industry education. The Mike Curb Studios includes updated studio technology and will allow students to have hands-on experience in film and video production, post-production and visual effects, animation, gaming and music. The studio is named after musician, politician and philanthropist Mike Curb, who contributed to the project. The studio makes up one-third of the university’s Napa Hall facilities, which were renovated to expand the university’s art program. It allows the university to advance educational capacity both in art education and in entertainment industry management and production. “Our students now have the opportunity to produce work in a professional environment, which will ultimately lead to new and increased opportunities for them in the entertainment industry upon graduation,” said Jack Reilly, professor and chair of the university’s art program. Those who recently attended the unveiling of the new facilities included the campus community, Curb and Mark Hartley, partner and owner of music talent management company Fitzgerald Hartley Company. Hartley has gathered industry professionals and other resources to assist with the project.
