As a media program lead, you may experience an instance where you need to hand off a video shoot to a colleague to execute. When the scenario arises, please follow the steps below to ensure a smooth transition.
Step 1: Work with the faculty and your colleagues to determine available dates for filming. How you accomplish this task is entirely up to you; however, I have found Doodle Poll to be extremely helpful in determining dates for multiple across multiple campuses.
Step 2: Once you’ve secured a date for filming, open up the Media Production calendar and invite the videographers and studio.
Step 3: Schedule a 15-30 minutes informal discussion with the lead videographer to go over details of the shoot (e.g., aesthetics, learning goals, scripts, logistics, etc.).
Step 4: Attach the final script to the meeting invite, preferably two days (or earlier) before the scheduled video shoot. Doing so will give the videographers ample time to set up the teleprompter.
- When corresponding via email with the instructor about the video shoot, courtesy copy the lead videographer.
- Use the meeting invite to include as much information as necessary for the lead videographer to succeed. This information may consist of aesthetic treatments, schedules, studio preparation time, scripts, faculty info, etc.
- When scheduling time for the video shoot, it is a best practice to overestimate the time needed. Please factor studio setup and teardown into this equation
