A221O The Fishbowl
A221O The Fishbowl is a multi-purpose classroom that features a high definition projector and
stereo sound system connected to a DVD / Blu-ray player, a Mac mini with a full complement of
lab software, an AppleTV for Airplay use, and connections for laptop computers and tablets. A portable Cintiq pen display can be connected to the Mac mini, and portable downshooters can be brought into the room and connected to the projector for drawing and animation demonstrations. A portable PA system supporting one wireless microphone (lapel or handheld) can be brought into the room for Character Animation faculty wishing to use it. There are pinboards on the walls for hanging up student artwork, and there are two whiteboards at the front of the classroom.
A221O The Fishbowl also has floor-to-ceiling windows, and electronic blackout shades which can be lowered for privacy and better light control. A221O The Fishbowl is nicknamed the Fishbowl because it has an open ceiling that exposes the room to the rest of the Character Animation loft area.
For life drawing classes, rolling LED stand lights and sandbags are available for lighting models.
Since A221O The Fishbowl is a classroom, unsupervised student use is not permitted.
