Video Studio

The Video Studio is a performance and studio space that suppports and extends the capabilities of the labs and studios throughout the Digital Media Commons.
 
The space can be used for filming green screen squences, recording motion capture data or experimenting with projection mapping — to name just a fraction of the possibilities.
 
As a performance space, it can seat up to 90 people (depending on the size of the stage, set pieces, etc.).
 
Video Studio projects are typically experimental or academic, representing learning, research or teaching across the disciplines. They explore new media tools and strategies, new roles for technology in the performing arts, and new ways of combining elements from disparate fields.
 

Expertise


Digital Media Commons staff members often assist in projects as technicians, tutors, consultants or even collaborators. Expertise is available in a wide range of areas, including instructional design, audio or video production, sound or lighting design, technical directing, stage directing, and stage managing.
 

Work with Us

Interested in using the Video Studio? The studio may be reserved by members of the university community who have filled out an application.

Samples of productions developed and performed in the Video Studio can be seen on the DMC's YouTube channel.
