The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
So we are at the Jerome Liebling Center for film photography and video. Um, also known as J. L. C., Liebling, and the F. P. V. Building. Do you have a favorite One? What do you call it? I say J.L.C. Alright, let's go into J. L. C. My name is Haley. I'm a div three. Oh this this is an advising meeting. So we're headed to the Ken Burns wing, a famed documentarian. He funded this wing. Thank you Ken. Now this is the media lab. You can do a lot of video editing and photo editing stuff in this space. Any thoughts on this room? Alright, let's keep going. Okay, this is Grady. Oh am I on Camera? Yeah, this is Grady Div three student. Um Grady. Do you want to tell us what you study? Yeah. Well, photography is, that's kind of it. Ah, This is a bunch of stuff that was assembled for the 50th anniversary. People who graduated in 2020 so they didn't really, you know have their gallery moment for obvious reasons. There's really good stuff in here. The Bill Brand Screening Room, also known as 120. What do you do in there? Screen films, you can do 60 millimeter, digital, you can do just like a Mac, you know, all kinds of stuff. It's a classroom, as well as, screening room. Did you show the lockers. No, let's check out the lockers. Big storage space. You know, everybody has a locker. Okay, this one I've got a couple of books. This guy from the library. Um, Some old prints that I made for class, a photo album that I'm going to fill for my next project. Your pancakes. Oh my God! That was like three weeks ago. You need to throw those out. I've got my trusty Hampshire College mug, which I drink coffee out of very frequently. Um, some color negatives, some archival stuff. Um, a book about printing. This is a test C print. My work. Um Yeah, that's not that interesting. It's very interesting.The board. So this is the, yeah, where the magic happens. Draining and matting stuff, drying stuff. Here's an example of a dark room. This is number eight. Here's a solo dark room in addition to the classroom darkroom. So this, you know, you got your enlarger, easel, timer, trays for chemistry and a nice sink. Um, This is the one I personally prefer. I've done quite a bit of printing in here. Why? Um Why? That's a good question. I guess it just has a certain charm that I appreciate. Um we've also got, that's good for black and white. There's a color and larger um in the corner, but that's only, you know, if you're interested in like color darkroom stuff. Which is relatively niche. The wet area, film developing, chemistry, loading rooms. Yeah, the JOBO color film and print processing. Um, It's pretty sweet. It's a lot of fun to use. I see him. Hi mister! He's, he's pretty, old but he's spry. Got a lot of character. He likes to come hang out while Kane is here. He's very sweet. He's a very good boy. It's in here. I mean you got this table, you can cut prints on here. Pretty handy. Yeah. We have computers with editing software, scanners, scan film, work on it. I've done a lot of working here historically. I just finished scanning a medium format project that is going to go alongside the 1972 portraits of a bunch of Hampshire students. So, there's gonna be a bunch of the informal portraits of Hampshire students. Oh, so it's like the advising day portraits. Except yeah, so it's like all in the same setting, but different people. This is just a test. This is this isn't probably gonna be very cool. I love the square format. Thank you. It is a pretty nice build, it's not bad. I might need to restart. I keep yeah.
