The introductory and advanced video production classes are offered in a large television/video studio (M122) with adjacent editing suite (M121). Students in these classes learn to use DV and HD cameras, lighting, audio, switcher/fader, and the Final Cut Pro non-linear editing system. The studio and editing suite are also available at designated times so that students can work on their projects outside of class time. Classes in film history and criticism are offered in a classroom equipped for large-screen projection in 16mm, VHS, and DVD formats. Our media history and issues courses meet in a "Smart Room" that is equipped with PC and Smart Board for Power Point presentations, live Internet connection, and CD, DVD, and VHS projection.
Students also have access to a screening room where they can view their projects—from work-in-progress to final cut—on a large screen. The screening room is also used for visits by filmmakers and industry professionals who are invited to LaGuardia to screen their work, talk with classes, and critique student work.The college's Media Resources Center has a collection of nearly 2,000 films on VHS, DVD, and CD Rom. These include nearly all films screened in classes, which students may review, on their own, at individual viewing stations free of charge. In addition, the Center's Streaming Media Project offers 25,000 feature films that are available for viewing on campus for free. The Media Resources Center is located in the LaGuardia College Library, room E101.
