Studio G.’s Cyclorama

Studio G., named in honor of beloved long-time staffer John Gunther, houses our  “GreenScreen Cyclorama.” Some folks may be familiar with the term “cyclorama” as a mechanism used to create a “seamless” backdrop, also sometimes referred to as an “infinity wall.” In many photographers’ studios, these would be black, white, or gray backdrops. In our video studio, the walls and floor are covered with a special paint called Rosco Green. Modern video equipment can make the paint “invisible,” which enables an artist to replace the background with anything imaginable. Whether walking on a beach, flying over Manhattan, or occupying an entirely artificial fantasy space, an artist using our state-of-the-art space can bring a vision to life. Students, staff, and faculty have great praise for our facility and say its versatility is inspiring.
