NYU Tisch School of the Arts is offering a new 36-credit Master of Professional Studies (MPS) degree in Virtual Production. Students will learn at the Martin Scorsese Center for Virtual Production, opening in Fall 2024. This 9 month (September-May), full-time program will provide students an immersive, hands-on education in the emerging field of storytelling through Virtual Production.
The curriculum includes classwork, on-set production, collaboration and apprenticeship. Learn alongside a diverse group of self-directed students including teachers, artists, and other working professionals (writers, directors, designers, producers, cinematographers, technical directors) seeking an immersive academic experience.
In the Fall, students will focus on the story, design, directing and producing strategies for their master's thesis projects, while learning the workflow and technical aspects of Virtual Production within a foundation of a diverse and ethical set. During the Spring Semester, students will collaborate to complete polished thesis projects. It requires research, innovation, and a solid practice in technology and creativity to develop a successful virtual production - master both the science and the art at Tisch.
The 45,586 square foot Martin Scorsese Virtual Production Center will live on the top floor of Building 8 at Industry City, a 35-acre innovation campus on the Brooklyn waterfront. The Center will feature two double-height, column-free stages, two television studios, state-of-the-art broadcast and control rooms, dressing/make-up rooms, a lounge and bistro, scene workshops, offices, post production labs, finishing suites, and training spaces.
