Video production

We make films for online publication to present the University's teaching, research and other activities to a global audience. 

We provide a full script-to-screen service, working with you to develop your ideas before moving on to recording and editing. Work is filmed in broadcast-standard High Definition format.

We also offer advice to staff on using recording equipment and on film-making techniques and we can put you in touch with external suppliers for work such as video editing or duplication.
