Based within the College of Creative Arts (CoCA) the Wellington-based school has had a multi-million-dollar re-development and includes post-production, music recording and rehearsal and performance spaces designed by Andrew Monroe, one of the world’s leading studio acousticians, who most recently built and designed the new Abbey Road facility in the UK.
The new facilities comprise several state of the art recording and post production studios all fully equipped with professional standard analogue and digital recording technologies, Foley studios (for film sound effects), a S 7.1 dubbing theatre and post-production suites. The studios vary in size and acoustic properties, with the largest suitable for recording an 80-piece orchestra.
To support commercial Film, TV, Mixed realities and game development, the school has also built a custom 7.1 Dynaudio acoustics dubbing theatre, featuring a brand-new top of the range 48 channel Avid S6 console. The school has made a commitment to 4K film technology and has online edit suites.
The complex includes a number of practice, production rehearsal and PC and Mac labs. These new facilities complement the already extensive creative media facilities, which include production-level green screen, lighting stages, a 20-camera motion capture stage with work commencing on a new virtual/augmented and mixed realities lab.
The College of Creative Arts also offers course in the areas of Industrial, Fashion, Textiles, Visual Communication, Spatial Design, Photography and Fine Art allowing students to collaborate across the College.
Tours of the facility, a DJ and drinks and nibbles provided.
