Self Service Video Recording Studio

The Self Service Video Recording Studio (VRS) is located within the Media Design Lab / CrAFT Studio area on the lower level of Ramsey Library.  It offers patrons a quiet place to record personal and academic video projects including green screen, head shots, interviews, and more. This space is for current UNC Asheville students, faculty, and staff only. Drop-ins are welcome or you can make a reservation below.

Please note: There are 2 video recording facilities in Ramsey Library: the Video Recording Studio (VRS) and the TV studio.  The VRS is a self service studio and should not be confused with the TV Studio, which is a full service lab where technicians do the recording for you.
