Working closely with the Brooklyn College, City University of New York, and Steiner NYC, we designed the Barry R. Feirstein Graduate School of Cinema. The new program includes the facilities necessary for sophisticated digital film production – from early concept to finished product and affords students the opportunity to create in a professional setting. Unoccupied and unused for many years, the school is housed within Steiner NYC’s LEED Certified 25 Washington Avenue building at The Brooklyn Navy Yard. Production facilities occupy the sixth floor including a sound stage, production labs, motion capture studio, construction shop, equipment room, and a screening room complete with mixing area. Post-production labs, editing suites, recording studios, instruction, and administration occupy most of the fifth floor. The two levels are joined through a forum amphitheater, creating a spectacular gathering, meeting, and viewing space. Opening Fall 2015, the design accommodates Brooklyn College’s growing program.
