Video recreates lost Savannah train station and benefits from Architectural History faculty and alumnus consultants
Architectural History professor Karl Schuler and Architectural History alumnus Ruben Acosta (M.F.A. 2010) provided valuable information, insight and feedback in the creation of a video that recreates Savannah’s lost Union Station, erected in 1902 and demolished in 1962. The video was the result of collaboration of Visual Effects, Sound Design, and Film and Television students enrolled in a course offered by SCAD Visual Effects professor Joe Pasquale in spring 2013. Information about the station was largely drawn from the M.F.A. thesis, “Savannah’s Union Station: Architecture and the Gateway in the South,” of Ruben Acosta, who was able to visit the class and offer direct feedback while in Savannah serving as the department’s inaugural alumni mentor.
