Overview

Digital Media Production (DMP) directs and supports NSU faculty and staff through the creation and production of videos for the Web. Support is provided through each stage of the process: pre-production, production, and post-production. Digital Media Production staff also work closely with the Innovation Zone on the production of videos for online courses.

Project Requests
To submit a request, please email mediaprod@nova.edu.

Instructional Videos
From training videos to educational classroom videos, DMP can produce a piece to be used in conjunction with your classroom lectures or a video to enhance your department’s training techniques.

Promotional Videos
Let us promote your academic or administrative department. We can provide assistance from start to finish – from initial concept and scriptwriting to videotaping and editing. We can make your vision a reality.

Special Events Videos
We can provide video support to your special event. From recording your event to producing videos for play back, let our department take care of your special event’s video needs.

Video Recording Requests
All video recording requests should be submitted at least two weeks in advance. To submit a videotaping request, please email mediaprod@nova.edu.

Video Request Procedures

  • For scripted video projects, please contact us at mediaprod@nova.edu for a completion timeframe. As a general guideline, most projects take 3-4 weeks to edit upon completion of all videotaping associated with your project.
  • For videotaping requests, please contact us at least two weeks prior to your lecture/class to ensure that someone from our department can assist you. 
  • Video Release Form: Every person appearing on camera must sign a video release form, which authorizes DMP to videotape the person and use their image. A copy can be found here: Video & Photography General Release Form

Videotaping Guidelines

  • Wardrobe: To make the best visual impression, on camera talent should generally wear professional attire, unless the production does not call for it. It is suggested that talent not wear a white shirt or high-contrast color combinations (i.e. a white or off-white shirt with a dark jacket or dark tie). Pastels and dark colored shirts/tops are suggested. Wider stripes are recommended as opposed to shirts/tops with thin stripes – either horizontal or vertical. It is also suggested to avoid highly reflective jewelry such as solid gold or silver chains, necklaces and earrings.
  • Locations: DMP has a television studio, which consists of two backdrops and a green screen, which can be used for any production. Additionally, we provide videotaping services on location (outside the studio). Please contact us for a consultation on what type of setting will work best for your project.
  • Video Script: A video script is a vital component to the pre-production process. Although we do not require a script for every production, it is highly recommended. Media Production can provide scriptwriting and/or conceptualization assistance for your project. Please contact us for more information.
