Virtual Tours of Bucks

The Gateway building - crammed with state-of-the-art equipment
The best way to figure out if Bucks is the right place for you to study is to come in a visit us. We have regular Open Days (watch this blog to find out more about the latest one - coming up soon on April 25th).

But in case you can't make it in to see us in person, check out our virtual tours instead from the comfort of your keyboard.

First up is the High Wycombe Campus. This is a general overview of what the campus looks like. The big blue building that looks like TV set (above) is the Gateway building, and has tons of ultra-modern facilities like sound design, dance studios, green screen facilities as well as space to shoot live-action and record music.

Next up is a Production Studio. This shows one of the sound design rooms in Gateway - crammed with hi-tech hardware.

Also check out our Dance studio - "Studio 101" - here, and the "Gateway Studio" here. We have a strong dance department at Bucks and, using motion capture technology, animators can collaborate with dancers to make better and more sophisticated films.

And we have actors too - take a look at our drama studio here. Actors can help animators through motion capture collaborations, and also by doing voice-over work. Again, collaborating with other departments helps to raise the level of quality on any project. Film is a collaborative medium and a good director wants to squeeze the best talent out of everyone.

Finally check out the Library (aka "Learning Resource Centre"), which is crammed with books, computers and helpful staff. We're currently beefing up the library resources for animation, which you can read about here.

Of course, there is no substitute for coming in and taking a look around. But these virtual tours at least give you a flavour of what life is like at Bucks.
