University will name production building after magnate
stages that are used by approximately 1,000 students from the school’s film, TV and new media production divisions. “(Redstone’s) generous contribution to SCA and its students will go far and wide toward advancing the ambitions and goals of the next generation of media makers,” said SCA dean Elizabeth Daley, who announced the gift today. The 2,600-square-foot building is a state-of-the-art facility equipped with Strand dimming systems and Mole-Richardson lighting; floor lights, grip and electrical hardware; a production equipment center; wooden stage floors; and soundproofing and soundproof utility doors. Four years ago Redstone donated $3 million to USC’s med school, and he recently donated a major gift to Boston U. Building is part of SCA’s new Cinematic Arts Complex and will be dedicated Feb. 5.
