New School puts ProHD camcorders in the hands of student documentary filmmakers

The New School, a university made up of eight schools in New York City, has purchased eight JVC ProHD GY-HD110U camcorders for use in its new graduate certificate program in documentary media studies.

The New School's Documentary Media Studies program provides intensive, graduate-level training to aspiring documentary filmmakers. Using New York City as its laboratory, students learn about documentary history, theory and video and film production, and then produce, direct and edit an original 30-minute documentary. With just 20 students enrolled each year, the program allows for extensive one-on-one instruction from a core faculty of working professionals as well as renowned visiting artists.

The cameras will enable students to produce professional documentaries, said Dawnja Burris, associate chairwoman of the Department of Media Studies and Film at The New School. It integrates with the school's existing film equipment and its new digital editing lab.
