As part of the Brandeis Library, Sound & Image Media Studios (SIMS) provides all members of the community with training and support for project work in video production, audio production, digital photography, graphic design and animation. We are located on Farber Level 3 and our area comprises four creative spaces: a media classroom, a collaborative editing lab, a Video/Photo Studio, and a Sound Studio.
Our student staff provides general support and troubleshooting on a walk-in basis, as well as in-depth consultation and tutoring by appointment. Brandeis community members are welcome to request training sessions or one-one-one tutorials on the production equipment we have available for loan and on the editing/design software available for use on our computers.
Each semester we also provide instructional sessions for academic courses across a wide variety of disciplines to support projects such as short documentaries, interviews, podcasts, video essays or skits. Please contact Mark Dellelo, the Director of SIMS, if you are a faculty member with an idea for a class media project.
Workshops and Events
We periodically hold events and workshops that you can view and sign up to attend via the Library's workshops calendar. If you are unable to attend a scheduled workshop, you can always request help by appointment by completing one of our forms.
