Depending on individual project needs, custom video projects may incorporate animation, graphics, live event capture, audio, photography, interviews and studio production, and other digital mediums.

Features and Benefits

Video production experts work closely with faculty, staff, departments, and students at all stages of media development: planning, production, editing, and finalization. Production services can include promotional videos for departments, programs, or research; pedagogical videos for online courses, in-class teaching, training, safety, technology, and policy; live event recording.

  • Custom start-to-finish video creation aligned with project purpose and client needs
  • High-resolution HD and 4K video production
  • On-location and studio services, including the ability to travel
  • Convenient availability to fit your schedule
  • Flexible deliverables to accommodate your needs in web, digital display, event projection, or other media players.

The majority of video production services take place on the Evanston campus, with frequent filming or production occurring on the Chicago Campus. The team is able and willing to travel for productions, and this travel cost will be included in the billable total.

Before accepting a video production project, the Media and Design video production team will evaluate the team’s capacity, capability, and appropriateness with regards to the new proposed project. If the team cannot accept the project, they may be able to recommend alternative solutions, services, or vendors.
