An overview of how to make a video in the Story Studio.

What is the Story Studio

Located on the second floor of Roesch Library, the Story Studio is a streamlined media production studio for recording and editing video projects. All you need is a USB flash drive to get started.

Don't know how to set up cameras, lights, touch screens, or microphones for high quality video? Don't worry. The Story Studio will handle that automatically so you can focus on creating a compelling media project.

Make a Reservation

Make a reservation in the library's online reservation system. The Story Studio's recording studio and editing stations can be reserved in two hour blocks.

You will receive an email confirming the date and time of your session. When you arrive for your session, check in with a member of the Hello Desk in the 1st Floor Lobby of Roesch Library and let them know you are here for your reservation. They will swipe you into the studio.


Here's how you can prepare for a successful session in the Story Studio:

  • Bring a USB flash drive. You will need this to save your video recording.
  • Write a script. Think about what you would like to say in advance. You don't have to get it perfect the first time, but you should prepare a script or notes in advance so that your message is clear.
