Filming in Stage 1
After receiving access to Stage 1, you will choose between filming your project with the One Button cart or with a camera and tripod you check out at the front desk.
Stage 1 also offers a range of other tools that add flexibility and production value to your project.
Lighting Presets (Zones 1-3)
Studio Lighting Presets
Though you can use the checkout LED lighting kit in the studio, Stage 1 also provides custom lighting presets for lighting fixtures already designed around each zone. In addition, zones 1 and 2 also offer colored wall washers that can further transform your scenes.
Green Screen (Zone 1)
Shooting Green Screen Footage
Teleprompter (Zones 1, 2)
Working with a Teleprompter
The iCue Teleprompter is also an easy way to add polish to speeches and presentations delivered directly to the camera.
Lightboard (Zone 3)
Using the Lightboard
The Lightboard allows faculty students to produce short videos introducing concepts visually on a glass markerboard as they speak directly to a camera. They write directly on the illuminated glass with neon markers to illustrate points and concepts as they talk. A PowerPoint image can be merged to appear in the video as if it has been projected onto the writing surface. Lightboard is useful for a lecture, a lab demonstration, presentations or project demos, problem explanations, homework explication, and more. This feature is only available in Zone 3.
