Video Production

The communications team can advise on video projects in terms of best practices, storyboarding and editing. Please contact us to meet about your video project, borrow a video camera or discuss video production services on campus.

Note: If you are using music in a video, you may want to consider using royalty-free music or purchasing stock music for your production. Use of many songs requires purchasing the rights to the music in order to share the work publically as a part of your video and may be cost prohibitive. Contact the communications team if you have questions about music use in video productions.
