The faculty also boasts full production facilities which include a colour correction suit, a 5.1 audio mixing facility and a 3D editing system. Students are also able to work in a dedicated sound stage with green screen, professional 2K camera, Stedicam, LED film production lights, extensive grip equipment including dolly, track and camera jib, and a dedicated private Final Cut ProHD editing suite.

Additonally, there are costuming facilities and 24/7 access to everything listed.
