We believe a filmmaker only becomes truly proficient through much practice, so we maintain production equipment and post-production facilities with the philosophy of continuous and ample access. The Production Center is available 24 hours a day. Unlike many film schools, students have access to most equipment day one.
The Production Center runs like a small studio where students determine the necessary tools for projects and make arrangements for gear (camera/lighting/audio) and reserve soundstages, grip trucks, or editing stations.
Industry-standard tools are purchased and upgraded annually. Strong relationships are maintained with local vendors to provide additional support for anything beyond our inventory.
The portfolios, reels and film festival awards that come out of access to the Production Center bring professional recognition to students and provide vital resume material for future employment.

- Studio A: 1,500-square-foot soundstage capable of holding larger sets
