The Ringling College Studio Labs

Take your story from the studio to the big screen.

Welcome to The Ringling College Studio Labs, the first academic and commercial soundstage and post production facility of its kind in the state of Florida.

Spanning the length of a city block, our 36,000 square foot complex is home to two acoustically-isolated 8,400 square foot soundstages (Studios A and B), three 2,000 sq ft soundstages, and over 5,000 square feet of post production spaces, including editing suites, dubbing bays, faculty offices, a private screening room, and a Foley sound effects stage.

Home to Ringling College Film

Our students become professionals by working like—and with—professionals.

At Ringling College, Film students work on projects with renowned filmmakers, writers, directors, and actors to make critical industry connections—connections which often lead to internships and careers.

Of course, we believe an extraordinary education is its own reward. But we enjoy raking in a few accolades anyway. Despite coming on board as recently as 2007, our program has been ranked by The Hollywood Reporter among the nation’s Top Film Programs (the youngest to receive that honor!) and our department head Brad Battersby was recognized by VARIETY as the 2017 Mentor of the Year.
