The International Center for Excellence in Animation program gives graduates the tools they need to both succeed in the industry and express their own unique creative visions.
The Tri-Main building in Buffalo houses the ICEA. The renovated 17,000 square foot space on the fifth floor has editing rooms, libraries, studios, and a screening room. The Center encourages students to place themselves within an artistic context, and inspires them to look beyond Western New York to the global artistic community. Its studio spaces, converted from the Tri-Main Center’s industrial past, provide the International Center with a look more similar to a warehouse in New York’s fashionable Meat Packing District than a College academic setting.
IBC Digital, an integral partner in the Center, shares facilities, creative projects, and international collaborations with Daemen. Students will benefit from the professional experiences and training garnered through available internships and post-graduate employment opportunities. The partnership provides a necessary experiential component to strengthen technical training, and direct students to the areas of study to which they are best suited.
