As designers, film makers and technicians, we are responsible for creating the physical and visual world of the play or film; a world of scenery, lighting and costumes that transport the audience in time and location. We teach a variety of courses in film making, design and execution of all areas of technical theatre. Our goal is to expose our students to future careers as designers and technicians in the entertainment industry.
