Digital Arts Lab

Digital Arts Lab

Located in our Genworth BrightLights Education Center, the Digital Arts Lab is comprised of an editing room and studio space. Students learn every facet of production from pre-visualization, setting up, shooting, editing, and perfecting video content. Students that excel in their studies can even be hired as paid internships or be eligible for college scholarships.

Class registration for the Fall of 2023 will open soon!

The editing lab features Apple workstations with the Adobe Creative Suite software as well as open source software like GIMP, Blender, and DaVinci. Students spend time learning important concepts in design, motion graphics, and post production that apply no matter what brand of equipment they use to create.

The studio features audio recording equipment, multiple backdrops including green screen, lighting equipment, HD and 4k cameras.  Students learn how to safely and effectively run their own productions. The Digital Arts Lab is also available for rental so local arts groups can use our equipment to create content of their own.

Hire RPAA For Your Production

Real-world experience is more valuable than classroom instruction. Which is why we offer our students opportunities to work on productions for our Resident Companies and arts groups in the Richmond region at a much lower cost than full-fledged production studios. For more information about hiring RPAA to help you record your production or to rent studio space and equipment, contact Andrew Keeton or submit a production request below.
