“The AS Media Center is an amazing support every step of the way of the creative process. It’s a collaborative, dynamic space, and everyone involved is so committed to enabling students to create media. As a film major, it’s exciting to see a space on campus where I can get the tools and support to experiment with different forms of media, pursue new projects, and get creative. It’s a friendly and extremely helpful center, and I’m so glad to be involved in it.” Leah Bleich, Film Studies
Welcome to the UCSB Associated Students Media Center
The AS Media Center is a fully student funded creative space available to UCSB undergraduate and graduate students (faculty & staff click here) and equipped to help you with everything from creating a simple flyer for an event to producing a video documentary about something that you’re passionate about.
The Media Center has tools for your creative process, including still and video cameras, computers, and a space to meet and view your finished work. Equipment can be checked out and the center’s computers come equipped with the software you need to edit both image based and audio projects. There’s even a studio space with lights and backdrop you can reserve. We’ll help you with the set up and train you to do it yourself.
You can also get the most recent updates on our Facebook site by clicking here.
A series of free workshops will get you started with the basics of everything from creating and maintaining a WordPress website to photography and videography to using Lynda.com (free for UCSB student employees) to learn more.
If you already have expertise in any of these areas, share it! Our goal is to create a creative community where ideas flow freely. The Media Center is yours to utilize, grow, and expand to serve your creative goals.
Stop in anytime during normal business hours to work on your projects and share your ideas!
