Cinespace Chicago Film Studio To Create Stage For DePaul Cinema Students

CHICAGO, April 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- DePaul University's School of Cinema and Interactive Media is teaming up with Cinespace Chicago, the city's premiere movie studio, to create a learning environment that will provide students with film and television production experience in the midst of a working studio.

Under the arrangement, Cinespace Chicago will provide an exclusive cinema production stage and design space for DePaul's cinema students — only a few doors down from where the TV show " Chicago Fire" is being filmed.

" DePaul students will experience this truly unique opportunity, where their classroom — their dedicated stage — is on an active studio lot," said Matthew Irvine, director of the school and an associate professor who teaches screenwriting and directing.

"There's no other film program like this," said Irvine. "Right in the heart of the country, right in Chicago, it's going to be a one-of-a-kind opportunity for students who want to get involved in the film and media industry; to work shoulder-to-shoulder with industry professionals who are working on current productions."

David Miller, dean of DePaul's College of Computing and Digital Media, where Cinema and Interactive Media is housed, noted the advantage that this dedicated stage space will offer students. "Our cinema program develops complete filmmakers, with experience ranging from screenwriting through post-production and distribution. With this Cinespace alliance, our students will have access to the latest professional film and television production equipment on a stage located in the center of one of the largest film and TV studios in the country."

The university's production space has a ground-level 20,000-square-foot footprint, including a 10,000-square-foot soundproof stage and a second-level instructional support space. Additional space will house a prop shop, offices and set storage.
