Great filmmakers are only made through constant and consistent practice, which is why we maintain production equipment and post-production facilities with the philosophy of continuous and ample access. The Studio Facilities are available 24 hours a day, and unlike many film schools, students have access to most equipment on day one.
The Studio Facilities run like a small studio where students determine the necessary tools for projects and make arrangements to use sound stages; camera, lighting and audio gear; and reserve editing stations. Industry-standard tools are purchased and upgraded annually. Strong relationships are maintained with local vendors and alumni network to provide additional support for anything beyond our inventory.
There are countless portfolios and reels produced and film festival awards that have been earned as a result of access to the Studio Facilities, and they help bring professional recognition to students and provide vital résumé material for future employment.
