One of the most valuable experiences from the LA semester is the mentor program. You get one on one time with someone from the industry, from production assistant to development executives. My mentor lent a supportive atmosphere and was actually interested in my current projects. The alumni dinners and mentors are obviously a great way to network and get an inside scoop on breaking into the business. If you’re trying to get into the entertainment industry, LA is definitely where you need to be, more opportunities and more sunshine. It’s always a beach day in LA.
