  • Video Production

    Promotions, Commercials, Event Capturing and more.

    Video is a powerful communication and storytelling medium.  Video Production Services is here to help CBU communicate its stories and to promote its programs.  We work in partnership with CBU Departments and staff to create videos which are shared on the CBU website, through social media and at events.

    Here are a few things to keep in mind if you are requesting a video production

    • Shorter is better for promotional videos.  Best to stay within the 1 to 3 minute range.   Information videos can be longer, usually 3 to 5 minutes.   Of course, there are exceptions.
    • Consider how best to share your video.   This will also determine how long it can be, as social media has set limits.  
    • To create an effective video, the visuals and the audio are equally important.  It’s the combination of multiple elements that help to create an impactful video.
      • An engaging story or message
      • Well composed images – video, stills, graphics
      • Effective sounds – voice, music and possibly sound effects

    When planning for a video, please include us early in the brainstorming phase to make sure all aspects are being covered.

    Needed lead time:  Depending on the complexity of the project, lead times would vary, but generally 3-4 weeks.

    Let’s get started: The first step is to fill in the request form so we can assess your requirements.   Next, we will contact you to set up a meeting to go over details, brainstorm ideas and come up with a plan.
