Video Production

Production Services

The ITS and University Communications Video Production Team provides professionally produced, short-form video programming that will be distributed through public channels such as the university web site, Wesleyan's Video Gallery, YouTube and social media channels. Available services include single and multi-camera video shoots; video support for interviews, lectures, and tutorials; promotional videos, video ads and more. 

A Creative Brief must be submitted and approved by ITS and University Communications. Projects are prioritized according to their alignment with the University’s communications goals and their potential impact. Services are performed by university staff at no cost to you. Please allow at least three weeks lead time before a video crew is needed. If you have an idea for a video program, contact Melissa Datre,  who will work with you to develop a creative brief for your project.

Requesting parties are responsible for obtaining signed video release forms from the on-camera participants prior to the event taping. Click HERE for the current Wesleyan Video Release Form.

NOTE: The Web & Video Services team creates videos for public release only. For departments or staff who want audio or video for internal or archival use, you may make that request when you reserve a room through the EMS room selection system.
