How does the process work?
These are the stages of the working process:
- Before each production, an initial meeting is held for a discussion with the team about the structure, goals and purpose of the video/illustration/infographics. This also includes help with communication planning and a clarification of who the client is and thus who provides feedback and approves the delivery.
- Afterwards, you receive an assignment description and a cost estimate.
- The next stage is that you, as the client, approve the brief, cost estimate and script outline, if applicable.
- In the final stage before the production starts, the script and storyboard are approved.
- The work on filming, interviewing, graphic production, illustration, editing etc. gets underway.
- You will then see a first draft on which you can give your feedback.
- The video/illustration is finalised with a final review and minor adjustments and sent for final approval.
- If the video’s content, goals and purpose are suitable for dissemination via the University-wide channels, the organisation can get help with this.
You can also contact the University’s procured agencies for help with videos, animations and illustrations.
Some of the University’s procured photographers can also provide help on small video productions.
