Why Create Video?

Video can do a number of positive things for your department, organization, or class. Not only does video give you a permanent record of an on campus event, because we originate content using digital video, you can repurpose your video content into almost any medium you can think of ! Also, don’t forget about the on campus cable channels, any thing you create can be broadcast, which increases the overall “reach” of your program and can be shown any day at any time!

Video Production Requirements
Mobile Media & Audio Services will be happy to assist you in your video production needs. Please consider the following before submitting your video production request:

  • What do I want to video tape
  • Who should see this video
  • How would I like them to see this video
  • When would I like them to see this video

Considering these aspects allows us to better determine the best final product for you. In addition to the items found on the video request form, if you have access to information such as the names and titles of the featured persons to be taped (as well as release/permission to tape information), graphics used on invitations or announcements related to the event are also helpful. Above all, please let the featured person(s) know that you intend to video tape them. This allows them to “mentally” prepare for that aspect of the event. Also let them know, should they have any multimedia materials (a power point presentation for example)they are willing to provide MMAS either prior to or just after shooting, this can be directly incorporated into the final edited piece. Finally, please let the featured person(s) know that as a result of the event being video taped, they may be required to wear a special microphone.
