What We Build



What we build? It means something. 

In 2017, the newly renovated Ford Theatres found itself reopening to an uncertain political climate. Unlike much of it's competition, the Ford is publicly owned by the people of Los Angeles County and relies heavily on donations including the National Endowment for the Arts, which the current administration has vowed to eliminate. It would be easy to get angry, divide along political lines, or simply shrug and give up. 

But this is LA. We don't build walls. We build stages. 

So this is the video we created. It is filled with talented people who donated their time to make it a reality.
