Neighborhood Photo Project Mar 5, 2012

Two industries that span decades of growth for Culver City, Calif., as seen from one hilltop. Oil rigs, and movies/TV. Sometimes overlapping. In the left photo, the building in the oil fields has been used for TV and film scenes. A few miles away, the white buildings center in the distance, on the right photo, with the water tower, are Sony Pictures Entertainment Studios, in addition to a number of independent film sound stages and production companies.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
