Creating video

Quick tips for creating video content:

Creator Space

Video has become ubiquitous in this day and age. We consume it through our devices and engage with it daily on an educational and entertainment basis. Now, UWA students and staff have their own facility, the Creator Space, a purpose-built media recording studio to record video and audio.

The Creator Space offers the ability to independently create simple video and audio recordings for the studies at UWA.

  • Easy-to-use touchscreen system
  • Utilise the green screen to overlay images and other content in post-production.
  • Use the online booking system to secure your spot here.
  • Access the space using your UWA campus card, Monday to Friday, 8am – 5pm.
  • Located in the Physics building.

The amount of space you’ll need on your USB drive depends on the type and length of recording you are doing. You can use the following table for an indication of USB space required:
