film video integrated media

The Film Video Integrated Media (FVIM) area of Emily Carr University offers students a number of facilities for film production, as well as an assortment of lighting and grip equipment to be used on campus, or taken off-site for location work.

Sound Stage with green screenStudents work in our 1200 square foot acoustically treated Production Studio, equipped with a 16 foot lighting grid DMX controller. The space contains studio flats for building film sets, a dolly, and a variety of lighting and grip gear by Matthews, Kinoflo, Arri, and Manfrotto. 

Our Project Studio is 600 square feet and is more oriented to media based gallery work and installations, although it also gets used as a production space. This open studio incorporates a 15 foot lighting grid. Although a Final Cut Pro & ProTools editing station with video projection and mounted speakers are in the studio at all times, students often bring other media equipment in for experimentation and work.

Editing Suite

Editing Suites

Video post production stations use current Mac Pro towers running Final Cut Pro and Adobe’s Creative Suite, DaVinci Resolve and Pro Tools. The area has both individual edit suites, as well as a 10 station room to facilitate communication and collaboration while working. A dedicated screening room and edit suite is also available complete with HD projection, 7.1 surround sound, and acoustic treatment to help editors finalize their cuts.

Sound post production in the FMSA area is done using Pro Tools and/or Logic Pro. A dedicated Foley/ADR room feeds the control room for recording, and a wide selection of microphones are available down the hall at the Media Resources department. Along with the software packages mentioned above, MaxMSP, and Jitter are also running in our multi-station computer lab.

Shooting on locationOn the analogue side of things, the FMSA area has a 16mm film editing suite and darkroom, a Steenbeck Flatbed editor, and a multi format dubbing station to allow for the transfer and capture of formats both old and new.
