A unique campus, the UNC School of the Arts provides educational programs in the performing arts to train young artists for professional careers. The new 30,000 SF Film Production Design Facility for the School of Filmmaking houses the Art Direction and Animation Departments, achieving one of the University’s goals to showcase work taking place within the Film School, not just the final product. A combination of shops, studios, and labs, the new facility integrates traditional craft and fine arts with innovative technology and equipment. Shop spaces include high-bay wood shop, high-bay paint deck with spray booth, metal shop with two welding booths, and craft shop for casting, sewing, and dying. Studio spaces have both drawing boards and digital media for production, animation, and gaming.
