Investing in present & future creatives
“I thought I was in the wrong spot from the outside. But then when I stepped into the building, I felt like I was transported to Hollywood” one student from SNHU's video production class excitedly told us.
This past month, students of Southern New Hampshire University joined us at Studio Lab for a facility tour and demo of XR technology.
“You think you have to travel to California or New York for something like this.” Hearing Matt, a creative writing major, say this excited us, as this exact idea has been one of our hopes for being established in New Hampshire. At Studio Lab we truly desire to represent, inspire, and support New Hampshire creatives in producing high caliber creative content. You don’t have to travel to Hollywood in order to find state of the art production facilities. New York isn’t the only spot where individuals can make their creative ideas come to life. The entertainment industry and community within New Hampshire is alive and our desire is to increase the level of entertainment for the state. And part of that increase comes from believing and investing in present and future creatives.
You could see the wheels of creativity start to turn as students quickly jumped in to volunteer for the demo, asked thoughtful questions on the details of XR technology, and dreamed out loud with thoughts of “maybe one day I’ll be able to record my podcast here.”
Whether it's a podcast, a music video, or a virtual event held in outer space (with aid of the video wall, of course), we hope that Studio Lab encourages out of the box thinking, supports collaboration, and allows a set of fresh eyes to spark something genius.
