A Window into our Busy Studio...

Jan 16, 2015

Whew, it's been a busy week in our top-floor studio space! Our hard-working students in Digital Photography shot head shots for students in our Acting for Film & TV department, under the awesome guidance of Ross den Otter & Sarolta Dobi of Pink Monkey Studios. This afternoon, we also had a green-screen shoot for Visual Effects happening, all at the same time. 

This is a great example of our various departments working together and our daily buzz of activity! We're definitely ready for the weekend after all this hard work and play.
