How Do I Get Started?
In support of George Mason University's strategic priorities,
GMU-TV assists with the creation and development of instructional, training,
marketing and promotional videos, and courses suitable for television
broadcast. To facilitate this mission and to insure high quality productions,
GMU-TV invites proposals from administrative and academic departments and
faculty members who wish to develop such materials. The following procedures
help to provide the most effective support for these projects.
Faculty or departments interested
in developing videos should call and arrange for a tour and a meeting. GMU-TV
is located on the 4th floor of Innovation Hall. Our phone number is 993-3110
and our e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org. During this initial
meeting, GMU-TV staff will walk you through the discovery process, assess
the needs and goals of your project, and explain the options and
technology available. This initial meeting will also serve as a brainstorming
session to help you envision the best way to present your content, and provide
the framework for a Production Proposal. After this initial meeting, GMU-TV
staff will continue to provide assistance developing the proposal and a script
for the project.
Faculty members or departments interested in developing video material should submit a Production Proposal to GMU-TV. Click here to download the Production Proposal.
