Video Production Services
In order to initiate a video project, fill out a Video Request Form.
The video producer will review your request and set up a meeting to discuss your needs. The review process may include determining the scope of the project and evaluating your proposed timeline.
It is a good idea to fill out a Video Request Form as early as possible as projects tend to accumulate throughout the year. A good rule of thumb is to initiate the project at least three months before the date you need the final product so the Producer can integrate your project into the workflow.
The producer can help you evaluate your needs for a project, clarify your message and construct that message on screen.
For your initial meeting with the producer, it is helpful to have answers to most of the following questions (these are asked on the PIF, but the meeting can help to clarify and expand on these points):
- Under what pillar(s) would this video be classified? (required)
- Who is your intended audience?
- What is your timeline?
- Who will provide the content (e.g. pictures, supplemental video, interviewees) for the piece?
- Who will be responsible for final approval on your end?
- Client contacts potential interviewees (i.e. faculty, students, staff) to confirm their willingness to participate
- Client delivers all visual elements (e.g. relevant photos, archival footage, banners, logos, precise spelling of names, etc.)
- Establish timeline for video
