Contact Video Services

 

 

We regularly produce promotional videos, record and live-stream events and performances on and off campus, film aerial footage with our drone, and film instructional videos for classes. Our amazing video and sound studios in Kerr Hall have everything you need to create a professional recording, including sound-proofing, multiple cameras and microphones, audio and video mixers, a green screen, embedding digital content, and a teleprompter. 

 

 

Instructors and TAs can come to the studios to use the Learning Glass to create short instructional videos for their classes. This is free of charge when you learn to use the self-service recording and upload options directly to GauchoCast.
