Supporting more than 150 film projects annually, Production Services (formerly FPS) maintains motion picture production equipment and facilitates post production facilities for the College of Communication Film and Television Program. With more than 50 camera packages, 40 sound packages, and 40 lighting and grip packages, a low student-to-equipment ratio is achieved. Maintaining 25 Non Linear Edit systems provides sufficient time for students to post their projects in a creative, academic environment.
The equipment and facilities of Production Services are solely for the use of students who are enrolled in FilmTV production classes or butv10 and working on projects and assignments for these classes or butv10. Directed Studies are not considered production classes and may not be used for producing film or television projects.
The office is located at 640 Commonwealth Avenue in room B17 and operated by three full-time BU employees as well as several part-time student workers.
