    Be sure to leave an extra 90 minutes before your event and 60 minutes after your event to allow time for our team to set up and break down the needed recording equipment.
  2. Follow this link to complete an Event Video Request .
    We ask that form be submitted at least 14 days prior to daytime events (M-F 9:00-5:00) and 30 days prior to evening and weekend events to assist us in scheduling. Please note that due to staffing limitations our ability to cover night and weekend events is limited. (updated Jan 2020)

    2. Date and Start Time:
    3. End Time
    4. Location
    5. Basic technical requirements - For example: How many speakers would need microphones? Is there a presentation? Are there other special circumstances we should be aware of?

    Please email the form letter portion to any non-university individuals who will be speaking/performing at the event.
    We ask that Talent eRelease Forms be completed at least 7 days prior to the event.
    Failure to do so may result in the cancellation of your request due to staffing limitations.

  4. Upload any promotional materials for the event to your project’s unique share folder as they become available: PowerPoint presentation files, programs, flyers, photos, biographies, descriptions, etc. We will make use of these to improve the quality of your video.

A friendly reminder that we are not able to mobilize our production team without first securing a properly completed Event Video Request and Talent eRelease Formfor everyone appearing in the video. We will confirm your production will be video recorded in a separate email after securing releases. Thank you.
