The diverse panel of educators and senior executives in the Media Arts Industry included Bob Mohler, Senior Vice President Digital Media, Telepictures Productions; Jesse Gilbert, Chair of Media Technology, Woodbury University; Jennifer Romolini, Editor-in-chief/Editorial Director, Yahoo! Shine and Yahoo! Lifestyles; and Richard Lightfoot, Media Arts Teacher, Jordan Middle School.

The lively panel discussion took a look at information technology for creative production and the significant changes in how we create and just as importantly, how we consume art and media… and what we can do for Burbank students in preparing them for future careers in this vitally important growing industry.
