The video studio is located in the Halle Library and includes a small studio area featuring Sony professional recording equipment and computer editing featuring Apple's Final Cut Pro 4 software.
What is the purpose of the Halle Library Video Studio?
The studio is operated through the University Library in the Division of Academic Affairs. It is dedicated to the production of instructional video and electronic media that has enduring educational value. As such, it is not available for casual recordings or for purposes not related to the educational mission of the University.
Who can use the video studio?
The studio is limited to use by faculty and others working with the library's Director of Video Services. Since the studio is not a classroom space, students working on video projects should secure their instructor's consent in order to check out video equipment from the library's Audio-Visual Distribution area - see audiovisual equipment request information. Students can also use the computers in the Multimedia area of the library for editing and post-production.
Are there services available for videotaping classes or other presentations?
The library does not have staff on hand to do video recordings for short-term applications or documentation purposes. Equipment is available for use in the Bruce T. Halle Library building - see audiovisual equipment request information.
Where can I go to receive instruction in video production?
EMU's Communication, Media and Theatre Arts Department offers a complete roster of classes in Electronic Media and Film Studies including hands-on courses in video production. More information is on their web site.
