By making typically behind-the-scenes aspects of the filmmaking process visible, the Columbia College Media Production Center is more than a building in which learning takes place: it is itself a valuable teaching tool. Including three large sound stages for instruction in film, video and motion capture, as well as teaching space for lighting, set-making, directing and animation classes, the Media Production Center is a professional-quality facility whose design encourages a new level of interdisciplinary collaboration among students and faculty. The first new construction building in Columbia's 118-year history, it is also a new model for sustainability in a discipline known for its high energy consumption.
