Sony Santa Monica Video Series Continues By Connecting the Craft

March 28, 2016 Written by Michael Briers

In the third episode of Santa Monica Studio Creatives, the documentary series spotlighting four key members of the development team, Lead Technical Artist Richard Greenspan takes center stage to discuss his journey into Sony’s first-party studio. 

Entitled Connecting the Craft, Greenspan — known internally as the Technical Mediator —  is very much considered the connective tissue within Santa Monica, tying together creative ideas across the team. 

Below you’ll find a synopsis introducing Greenspan into the team. 

Santa Monica Studio Creatives is a series focusing on 4 unique individuals of our family whose journey to our studio is as inspiring as their creative talents within. While their stories are candid, raw, and anything but normal, their expert crafts and collaboration within our creative walls hits the heart of what matters most to our studio culture – the team is everything.

In episode 3, Lead Technical Artist, Richard Greenspan, shows us what it means to be our “Technical Mediator”, to be a connector between all the creatives in our studio, to help us bring to life our biggest ideas on the PlayStation 4. Growing up in communist Russia, Richard Greenspan understood adversity and life challenges at a very early age as his family risked everything moving to the US. This is his story and what it means to Santa Monica Studio.
