Radio TV Film - New Studio - January 2007

Television - Audio Studio
John Hart, a lecturer in radio-TV-film, discusses an assignment with his “TV Studio Production” class, who are among the first students to be able to use the new television-audio studio built in the basement of the Pollak Library. The move from the second floor of the Humanities-Social Sciences Building to the library was to consolidate all electronic media and film production into one location, according to Ed Fink, chair and professor of radio-TV-film. In addition to the control room pictured, the new facilities include two studios — one for television production, one for broadcast journalism and a sound stage for film and video production — and new all-digital equipment, and editing bays that formerly had been in the basement of the College Park Building. Hart, who teaches “Introduction to Radio-TV-Film” as well as studio production, also works as an audio recordist for live-audience situation comedies and has won Emmy awards for his work on “Golden Girls” and “Mad About You.”
