Video services request

Visual and Broadcast Communications, a department within University Relations, produces promotional videos according to established departmental goals and priorities. Programming that reaches the widest external audience possible is of a higher priority than that with a narrow audience, and programming done for the university as a whole is of higher priority than that done for specific colleges or departments. Clients requesting these services must complete this online form to begin the process.


  • Visual and Broadcast Communications is a public relations department and does not provide multi-camera, studio, or live videotaping; videotaping of meetings, classes, lectures, or student organization events; or coverage of campus events with no predetermined University Relations program use.
  • All videos must have a specific predetermined use or distribution plan.
  • University Relations does not have the capacity to fulfill every request.
  • Reasonable notice should be given for a request.
  • Clients are charged for any travel and material costs and need to provide an ISR before a travel assignment takes place. The client is normally responsible for making travel arrangements.
  • Upon completion of filming, a videographer will edit and produce the video. Remember that this adds additional time before the video can be made available to clients.
  • Please schedule sufficient time for filming and remind subjects that they should have ample time available to participate in a video shoot.
