Veterans took center stage at this weekend's launch of a program called Vet 50, which gives veterans a chance to pick up some valuable film industry experience.

The program kicked off at the Lifton Institute of Media Arts and Sciences Studio in Castaic Saturday night with a fashion show, a stage show, music with a live DJ and complimentary wine and beer.

The program is the brainchild of studio President Jimmy Lifton, who told The Signal he wanted to offer 50 homeless veterans some job training at his Lifton Institute of Media Arts and Sciences Studio.

Several veterans - such as U.S. Army veteran turned movie makeup artist Di-Anne Johnson - turned out to help promote the program.

Vet 50 provides participating veterans with transportation, housing and a cash allotment for food - but more importantly, a chance at some useful job experience.

Anyone interested in learning more about the program is urged to contact Jimmy Lifton at 844-433-5467.
