Alternative to Recording in the Studio

Before deciding to use the studio you should first consider whether you could record at home. You can create videos at home using the Media Hopper Create desktop recorder. To do this all you will need is a webcam and mic plus a reasonable broadband connection to upload content. To find out more about this option and to view guidance and training visit the below link:

If you feel that recording media at home is not going to meet your needs, or you require extra levels of support, then you may want to consider filming in the studios.
