The FMC Experience: Creating DIY Media at the Faculty Media Center
The Faculty Media Center was developed to make creating your own media quick and easy. Our Do-It-Yourself approach aims to eliminate complex production tasks, enabling you to leave with a finished media product on the same day it was recorded. To help you get started, we’re excited to share our simple 3-step FMC Media Experience.
3-Step FMC Media Experience
We know that two of the biggest barriers to creating media are:
1 - Not knowing where or how to get started, and
2 - The time and expertise it takes to produce content.
While making media may seem overwhelming, your friendly and knowledgeable FMC consultants are here to guide you every step of the way. FMC instructional media consultant Amy Hunter can help identify your goals and discover an approach that meets you where you are. From understanding your audience to developing your content, our one-to-one CONSULTATIONS are personalized and tailored to your unique needs, and are the first step in the FMC Experience.
The Faculty Media Center studios offer a self-service, DIY recording process that eliminates common technology barriers so you can focus on creating your content.
EASY: Simple, user-friendly creation tools
EFFICIENT: Time-saving, integrated recording process
EFFECTIVE: Reliable, On-Demand support & troubleshooting
To make the recording experience as streamlined as possible, the FMC “One-Button” studios feature a mounted HD camera with zoom and pan remote control, pre-set lighting, high-quality microphones, and a familiar, easy-to-use touchscreen recording interface.
During your recording session, FMC consultants provide technical orientation to our studios and are on-site to ensure you’ve got everything you need to produce high-quality media. Whether it’s a podcast, interview, or lecture video using the new FMC Lightboard, we’re invested in your success throughout your entire appointment at the Faculty Media Center. Our best advice is to come in for a visit and do a practice-run to get comfortable and familiar with a process that works for you.
And that’s it! If you’re just learning about the Faculty Media Center or have worked with us before, we hope you find this overview of the 3-step FMC Experience helpful as you prepare to create your DIY media.
We look forward to seeing you soon at the Faculty Media Center!
