The studio’s main feature includes a 40-foot wide and 16-foot high LED wall that will give students across degree programs, film, game design and computer animation included, the chance to gain real-world experience with technology found in the entertainment industry.

“Beyond preparing high-skilled talent to meet the needs of our nation’s most innovative companies, Full Sail’s critical investment in our region’s digital infrastructure will act as a beacon for attracting, hosting and fostering the growth of professional productions right here in Orlando,” Tim Giuliani, Orlando Economic Partnership President and CEO, said in a release.
