Unique in higher education, this 76,000-square-foot Marion Knott Studios was specifically designed from the ground up to replicate a working production studio. From sound stages to state-of-the-art classrooms, computer labs with every program needed for pre- and post-production, design and special effects to our 500-seat Folino Theater to showcase your end result or host an amazing event, this building is a living, breathing creative space open 24/7 for your use.
But it doesn’t end there. For our production students, you’ll have the opportunity to shoot either HD or film for your thesis projects. And all of our student productions are well managed through a detailed green light process by a team of faculty and staff to ensure that all your basic production needs are met.
And the technology just keeps getting better. You’ll learn quickly that our philosophy is to never settle, so we are constantly upgrading our equipment to make sure our students are learning on industry-standard tools. Every year the needs of our students are assessed and new cameras are bought, computers are upgraded, and additional software is purchased. And it’s nothing but the best from day one for our students. As a freshman, you will be shooting on high-definition cameras in our Introduction to Visual Storytelling class.
Truly there is no better facility than Marion Knott Studios, but seeing is believing. That’s why we encourage every prospective student to schedule a tour to visit Dodge College.
