Whether you have a class assignment or you are recording for extracurricular events, make sure you know what the Media Center has as far as resources and services. Here are some questions to ask yourself as you begin your journey:
Have you checked out our Circulating Equipment page?
Do you know how to use the equipment?
What other pieces of equipment should you consider?
What software does the Media Center have that will help you edit?
Do you know how to use the software?
