The World-class facility will give next generation of filmmakers top tier tech

INDUSTRY CITY — NYU Tisch School of the Arts has teamed up with Industry

City to announce the substantial completion of construction of the Martin

Scorsese Virtual Production Center. Opening to NYU Tisch students in the fall of

2024, the new center will provide students and faculty with best-in-class

production facilities in a unique setting for collaboration and internships at some

of New York’s leading film and media companies. With construction now

complete, NYU Tisch will move in and begin outfitting the space with equipment

in February.

The 45,586-square-foot facility is located on the top floor of Building 8 at

Industry City, the 35-acre innovation campus on the Brooklyn waterfront. It will

feature two 3,500-square-foot double-height, column-free stages, two 1,800-

square-foot television studios, state-of-the-art broadcast and control rooms,

dressing rooms and makeup areas, a lounge and bistro, scene workshops, offices,

and training spaces. Located within Industry City’s thriving media and

production ecosystem, the center will feature equipment from several

neighboring tenants, including Abelcine and Lux Lighting.

“We are thrilled to celebrate this tremendous milestone, delivering a world-class

facility to NYU Tisch, complete with high caliber soundstages and studios to train

the next generation of filmmakers,” said Glen Siegel, Managing Partner at

Industry City (Belvedere Capital). “The Martin Scorsese Virtual Production

Center will integrate seamlessly into the burgeoning media and production

ecosystem at Industry City, allowing students to learn from experts in their field

while offering IC businesses proximity to emerging talent.”

The Martin Scorsese Virtual Production Center will offer hands-on training in the

latest production techniques. One of the first facilities of its kind on the East

Coast, it will further establish NYU Tisch as a global leader in cinematic arts

training by pioneering new technology and expanding training and collaborative

opportunities in the performing arts and design. In addition to serving as a

hands-on training hub for virtual production, the facility will be available for

commercial rental, providing a valuable resource to both the thriving media

community at Industry City and the broader region.

Virtual production encompasses a range of technologies that are transforming the

art and craft of filmmaking. Using game engine software, graphics cards, camera

tracking, and AR and VR, it allows actors and directors to work in a virtual

environment to create visual effects in real time, rather than in post-production.

Actors can respond naturally to their surroundings and directors can plan out

scenes and shots with precision, visualizing the final product in-camera. Virtual

production reduces post-production costs and the need to film on location,

making projects more sustainable.

Home to more than 70 film and media-related businesses, Industry City supports

every facet of the production lifecycle. The tenant roster features multiple

equipment suppliers, content creators, production companies, lighting experts,

set design houses, livestreaming service providers, and content distributors. The

16-building campus offers students opportunities for networking, employment,

and collaboration at companies including AbelCine, Buck Media, Lux Lighting,

The Garage, and Conde Nast. Industry City is highly amenitized with abundant

outdoor space, on-site fitness facilities, a robust food and beverage program, live

events and programming, and convenient proximity to Brooklyn’s rich talent pool.
