Professors Daniel Fine, Paul Kalina, and Bryon Winn received a half million dollar grant to create a new motion capture and virtual reality (MOCAP/VR) studio with professional equipment and ability for virtual production.
The studio is a laboratory for research and teaching where our faculty and students can work across disciplines to create theatre for the twenty-first century. These new technologies prepare our students for professional careers in the entertainment industry of the future and support our mission of innovation in the area of digital arts.
Every aspect of theatre training, including writing, acting, directing, scenic design, costume design, lighting design, sound design, and project management, can be leveraged in the creation of virtual and augmented reality experiences and motion capture technologies.
This studio allows us to achieve even more dynamic and immersive experiences for our students and audiences.
