Dorsey Dons  Visual Performing Arts Fundraiser

Over the next three years, the goal of the Susan Miller Dorsey High School Video Production Program is to mirror a state-of-the-art film production and post production facility that is demand-driven and continuously responsive to the ever-changing needs of a film and new media industry. The students have demonstrated the need for more rigorous and complex curricula that can only be obtained through the creation of a professionally equipped production facility. We are also currently in development/planning of our district-approved $5 million dollar facility that we are designing to support the needs of our programs, partnerships as well as to meet industry standards.
