Room & Space Scheduling

The Production Center uses a scheduling application called Skedda to manage room and space reservations. 

Room & Space Policies
  • Not all rooms/spaces are self-serve reservations. Some spaces (like Studio A & B) require a completed form to request a space. Find out more details about each space's requirements by selecting the space in Skedda.
  • Reservations may be made up to three weeks in advance.
  • No more than eight hours may be booked by a single user in a single day.
  • The Production Center reserves the right to cancel reservations made by anyone not permitted to use the rooms. Bookings that artificially inflate the amount of time in the room will be deleted.
  • CHECK-IN POLICY: Reservations require the booking holder to confirm their attendance within 15 minutes of the reserved time by responding to an automated email. A reservation may be canceled by staff if the room is not occupied within 15 minutes of the reserved time.
  • Food and drink (including water) are allowed ONLY in the kitchen and lobby. Users found with food or drink in other areas may lose access to the Production Center.
  • For a detailed list of the Production Center's policies, view the Studio Manual.
  • Failure to comply with established policies may result in the suspension of studio privileges.

Frame.io is designed so that a team can upload a variety of media like proxy videos of a project so that the team can collaborate within the Fram.io app. If changes need to be made, Frame.io integrates with editing suites like Adobe Premiere, DaVinci Resolve, and Avid Media Composer.
