The Ringling College Studio Labs

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.

The Ringling College Studio Labs was conceived and built in partnership with Semkhor Productions to offer a groundbreaking program that brings film professionals to Sarasota to offer the opportunity to collaborate with Ringling students and provide real world experience on real world media productions.

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.

"The facilities here look stunning! I'd be happy to build any set I need inside that beautiful building over there."

The Alfred R. Goldstein Library features a wide variety of quiet, group study, and work process spaces. Looking for a quiet study area? Make your way up to the 3rd floor to look for a book in the Research Collection or peruse the new art magazines while relaxing in comfortable seating. When the weather is nice, you can take your coffee from Roberta’s Café on the first floor to one of the four terraces to work outside and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature. Looking for meeting space to get together with a group? Check out the group study rooms, which are available on all three floors of the Goldstein Library. The 10 group study rooms are available to students on a first-come first served basis, or available for booking by Ringling College faculty and staff for group and class meetings.
