How to Work with GMU-TV

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. To facilitate this mission and to ensure 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.

How do I let you know I'm interested?

Faculty members or departments interested in developing video material should submit a Production Proposal to GMU-TV.

GMU-TV processes requests on a weekly basis. Once received, a member from our team will contact you for more specific information. Due to the high demand of production requests, please understand not all requests can be accepted. GMU-TV prioritizes projects that directly support academics and research endeavors. Thank you!

What happens after I submit a proposal?

Once we receive your proposal, we will reach out to schedule a brief meeting (either in person or virtually). 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 your production. After this initial meeting, GMU-TV staff will partner with you to identify the next steps in the production process.

How does GMU-TV select projects to work on?

GMU-TV reviews production proposals on a rolling basis. Due to the high demand for video projects, we create our production schedule several months in advance. Please plan and provide for the appropriate lead-time.
The selection process is based on the following:
  • The project is aligned with the university’s strategic goals.
  • The project has a significant impact (is a core part of the major University initiative, serves a large number of students, targets the needs of the Northern Virginia community.)
  • The project is well suited to the effective use of video.

Are there any costs associated with working with GMU-TV?

There are costs associated with developing videos. For a more in-depth explanation of these costs please see our Charge Back Policy.
