Cinema-quality work that brings your Notre Dame message to the right audience.
Watching video is the single most popular pastime for internet users. And with good reason. Practically no other medium can express emotion and communicate information like video. And while the proliferation of video tools (i.e., smartphones) means making videos is easier than ever, making them well is not. It still requires trained, skilled videographers who know the craft of using moving pictures to tell a story.
The Videography team, the University’s central storytelling video unit, produces extraordinary pieces for a wide variety of campus departments and campaigns, covering academics, faith, and the student experience at Notre Dame. They guide campus partners through decisions on content and style before providing a cost estimate.
To enhance certain video projects with aerial footage, the Multimedia team is approved by Risk Management and Safety for drone flights on campus. We also maintain a collection of scenic drone footage for use in projects to avoid excessive drone use on campus. Every shoot requires approval from the Notre Dame Police Department, so requests must be made at least one week in advance.
We approached the team with a sensitive project, but it needed a promotional vehicle that delivered powerful impact. That is exactly what we got. I was, and am, impressed by the degree of personal investment in our story, and the creativity with which it was given shape. We honestly could not have asked for more.
One of the major strategic goals of the NDIAS is reaching out to external audiences and generating interest in our projects and research. The MarComm Video team helped us come up with creative and highly effective video work that helped us do exactly that. They were very receptive to our vision and organizational goals and helped us elevate them creatively.
