The College of Arts & Letters' Film Production Lab features 6 iMac workstations running Adobe Premiere CS6, Avid Media Composer, and Final Cut Pro X, giving students the opportunity to work on the editing platform of their choice. The computers are equipped with M-Audio external speakers and 8 TB external Thunderbolt hard drives for storage.
Students are able to check out a variety of cameras with interchangeable lenses and heavy-duty tripods for support, as well as Tascam portable audio recorders with Rode NTG-2 shotgun microphones, boom poles and windscreens.
In addition to editing space, cameras, and sound equipment, the Film Studies program recently opened an intimate Film Screening Room that seats between 25 and 30 people, with brilliant HD projection and surround sound. The space is perfect for visiting lecturers or filmmakers and other small-scale screenings.
