Video is a wonderful way to inform people about elements of your department or as visual alternative to a traditional “how to” article one might find on the web. Because of the limited resources of the Visual Media department, we do encourage and support departments in the production of their own video content. To ensure and consistent branding and quality we have put together a few guidelines we ask you to follow when producing video content for your department’s website.
The easiest and most flexible option for making a movie is iMovie. If you are not on a Mac there is Windows Movie Maker, and even YouTube has free, basic editing capabilities now. There are dedicated machines for video editing in the library, and Library and Information Services will be more than happy to assist you with any questions you may have.
