The New Media Center continues its Beyond the Studio series this week with two master classes on very different subjects taught by American University staff and faculty.

First off, this Tuesday (tomorrow!) at 4PM, SOC Librarian Robin Chin-Romer will speak about the evolution of memes in her training session, “Rick Rolled Again: Memes and Meaning.” It’s sure to be a lot of fun.

Then, on Wednesday, join Emmy-winning SOC professor Larry Engel at 6PM for a class on how to shoot quality video with a low-end camera. If you’ve ever come into the New Media Center looking for one of the HD Vixias because you absolutely need the highest quality, you might learn a thing or two about how to get some great shots from your iPhone as well. We’re honored to have Prof. Engel come in for this training session.

Beyond the Studio will continue throughout the semester. Check the New Media Center website for a full list of their training sessions this semester.
