Five College 60-Second Video Contest

Five Colleges, Inc., is hosting a video contest. Submit a one-minute video about life on a Five College campus, and win cash.

Following major renovations during the past year, the Center for Media Production will welcome the Smith community with an open house on Thursday, Sept. 22.

Located in the lower level of the Alumnae Gymnasium, the Center for Media Production invites all to stop by between 3 and 5 p.m., tour the new facility, and enter raffles of high-quality media equipment.

Raffle drawings will take place every half hour between 3 and 5 p.m. Items raffled include a Flip Mini HD cam, an iPad 1, and two Edirol R-09 digital audio recording devices.

As part of a three-year re-organization of Educational Technology Services (ETS), the Center for Media Production (CMP) was renovated and repositioned to support a variety of media projects and productions, said Joanne Cannon, assistant director of ETS.

“Most people know that they can borrow media equipment and learn to use it,” said Cannon, “but are unaware that they can also use our facilities and expertise to create their own academic media productions.”

The CMP hosts a digital media lab, an audio recording booth, media duplication stations, sound and video studio, and a video conferencing room.

Recent renovations include a redone lobby area and digital video lab, and the creation of a digital audio recording booth and a self-serve conversion/duplication booth.
