Colorado Theia System Project


Published on

The Colorado Virtual Studio System incorporates gated and monitored access to valued tools (production and post production equipment) in the creation of original student work. In order to access production equipment, students must present written work (outlines, then treatments, then screenplays) that serve as the blueprint to the final project (completed film). The student project leader assembles a team of specialists (actors, producers and/or directors, art directors, directors of photography, production managers, lighting and sound technicians, makeup, wardrobe, and set design trainees, logistical coordinators, production assistants, camera operators, location managers, etc.) required for successful project completion. However, within this system, project completion is not the mere lensing and editing of the proposed project. It is the delivery of the project to the consumer (audience) through a variety of venues. Consequently, the gated access to desired resources is contingent on market focus, just as it is in the real world.
