In the winter block, SOFA professors Peter Kiwitt and Mark Reisch lead an anual trip to the Los Angles area where students can meet with studios and professionals in the film and animation fields. The trip focuses on connecting the active students with the industy and includes an alumni party to meet past RIT students currently working.

The yearly trip is very popular in the department and is a great part of how RIT and SOFA work to connect students with the working industry and get an understanding of the world we all want to be a part of. 

This year the school met with Paramount Studios, Nickelodeon Senior Directors, CBS and ASC.

The students got to meet with some real world workers in the industry. See the full article here!

SOFA strives to find places where students and the entertainment industry can really connect and the LA trip is a great example of where that happens!
