The Media Culture Department offers study sessions designed for students enrolled in cinema and communications courses. The sessions are designed to bridge the gap between the theory and application of professional production techniques by helping students become more familiar with the equipment and applications introduced in their classes.

Working in group sessions or individually with a tutor, students are able to apply their classroom knowledge to the processes involved in multi-media production in a supportive and informal setting. Topics covered include digital video and 16mm film production, introduction to the Macintosh work environment, non-linear editing, web design, digital photography, graphic design and web animation. In addition to technical instruction, our tutors provide consultation on creative projects.

All study sessions are held in the Film/Video Lab (1P-122) or the Digital Communications Lab (1P-231). These labs are equipped with Macintosh computers, printers, scanners and a full complement of audio, video and film production gear. Equipment manuals, industry trade magazines, classroom texts, CD and DVD tutorials are also available for student use. Please call in advance to make an appointment.
