Facilities and Equipment
The Film and Media Arts Program is housed primarily in the Richard E. Peeler Art Center, which offers a number of media classrooms, a large studio space where students work with camera, sound, and lighting, with an editing suite right next door where they can utilize Adobe Premiere Pro or Final Cut Pro. An array of filmmaking gear is available to FLME student for use in classes, independent studies, and Senior Capstone filmmaking projects. Student film, television, and video projects, as well as visiting artists’ films or other media projects and Q&As, are often presented in the Peeler Art Center Auditorium, a 90-seat auditorium with state-of- the-art acoustics, with student and faculty gatherings held in the open and airy lobby space.
The Pulliam Center for Contemporary Media is home to Watson Forum, a 91-seat media classroom and television soundstage that accommodates everything from visiting speakers to visiting filmmaker screenings to nationally televised debates. FLME students also take courses in television production at the Pulliam Center, as well as engage with campus student media outlets like WGRE, one of the top college radio stations in the country; television station, D3TV; or student managed, award-winning The DePauw, Indiana’s oldest college newspaper.
