Columbia College Chicago

Lights, Camera, Action!

What we did

Columbia, the largest film school in the country, didn't have its own sound stage to teach a hands-on approach to filmmaking. The concept for the Media Production Center (MPC) was born!

The campaign, "This is Columbia's Moment" kicked off at a college that had never raised more than $5 million before. We raised $25 million through hard hat tours and great outreach. The incredible facility designed by Studio Gang, is as beautiful as it is functional. Now future directors, camera persons, grips, gaffers, actors, and animators have a place to hone their craft at the MPC.
