A class in the Animation studios

Cutting-Edge Animation

Having the latest technology is essential as an Animation student. At the Cleveland Institute of Art, you will work in our state-of-the-art facility that consists of computer labs with the latest industry standard software and hardware. You also will have access to the newest equipment for digital video, lighting, and sound as well as a motion capture system, a green-screen Chroma Key studio, two lighting and shooting areas, a sound recording studio, a render farm, drawing tablets, cintiqs and a screening theatre.

CIA also houses the fabrication studios, a shared space, staffed and supervised by highly qualified technical specialists. Students from all courses of study are encouraged to use this space and do hands-on research with tools and materials. This communal environment gives students optimal means of making for their individual exploration and group projects.
