Video Production Studio



Video Production Studio

The Video Production Studio (VPS) is located on the second floor of 48 University Place.  Equipped with backdrops for filming and various photography and videography tools, the VPS is open to all undergraduates and ideal for recording a podcast, shooting promotional materials for student groups, or just working on passion projects.  Students are able to borrow equipment including cameras, microphones, and SD cards through our lend system, and take their photography or videography explorations out into the Princeton community.  We hope that the VPS serves as a resource not only for those with experience in photography or videography, but also those who may be new to these arts and want to test the waters.
