Animation Facilities

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 state-of-the-art computer labs. 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, and a sound recording studio.

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.
