Film & Media Studies production courses utilize Sony digital video cameras. Our tapeless Sony NEX-VG10's and VG30's offer both our advanced and our beginning level students tapeless, HD technology. Independent study students have access to our most advanced camera package, the Sony NEX-FS100. Students must first take TDF 160, Introduction to Video Production, before they are eligible to use upper-level equipment.
The department also has an array of professional production ancillary equipment - Manfrotto tripods, Fig Rig handheld devices, Fostex audio recorders, Sennheiser shotgun microphones, Sony wireless mic systems, and Lowel lighting packages (featuring Omnis, Tota-Lights, and Pro-Lights). All that a student needs to create a polished and professional video project is available for check-out in our equipment room.
The video equipment is staffed by a team of trained students workers who are available for check-outs, check-ins, and technical assistance. Equipment Manager: Zach Reese (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Students in production classes have 24-hour access to the Film & Media editing lab equipped with state-of-the-art iMac editing stations, Final Cut Pro 7, Adobe Creative Suite, and various other audio/video tools and software. A brand new sound recording booth features noise-absorbing foam walls for professional audio work, while a group editing space, complete with a 46" LCD TV, provides a quiet place to view a class project or watch a Blu-Ray film.
We are proud to announce the unveiling of a Film and Media Studies classroom, located in Stager Hall. This space features an HD projector and 5.1 surround sound, making it a great place to watch and discuss films.
Also available to the TDF department, the historic Green Room Theatre provides a large space to hold film screenings, and is the home to our semi-annual Filmmakers Showcase.
Anyone interested in reserving this space for film screenings should contact Zach Reese (email@example.com).
