Carson-Newman’s Digital Café: A Center for Digital Storytelling is located on the fourth floor of the Stephens-Burnett Library. The Digital Café, a facility designated for the use of Film and Communication students, includes 16 iMac workstations that are equipped with the Adobe Master Collection, Final Cut Pro and other software ideal for creative projects.
Next to the Digital Café, the Carson-Newman Studio offers a large multiple-camera production facility with a separate control room. The studio is used for student film and television productions and for the PBS series, Tennessee Filmmaker, produced by Carson-Newman graduate and award-winning documentary filmmaker, Keith McDaniel.
In the Media Center, students can check out high definition cameras for video acquisition, audio recording gear, tripods, a mini-jib, slider, and other equipment for on-location productions. It also offers high definition viewing areas, giving students the opportunity for detailed study of films and careful shot-by-shot analysis.
