Christian's grant allowed him to implement the first phase of building the infrastructure for a fully equipped media lab in the Hastings Center. The equipment gives Brimmer faculty the opportunity to offer a pedagogically sound film production curriculum, one that offers students comprehensive opportunities to learn best practices in pre-production, production, and postproduction of their original creative works.
The equipment for the first phase was the catalyst for an ongoing effort to maintain a technologically current suite of cameras, computers, and sound recording equipment. It expanded the capability and depth of the learning process for students in Digital Cinema, Digital Cinema II, and Advanced Digital Cinema, by providing them with the equipment necessary to create work with high production values. Up-to-date equipment enables students to leverage storytelling techniques that rely on cameras capable of varied, dynamic shots utilizing multiple lens-lengths.
