MCTV offers training for creating recruitment videos, marketing videos and educational videos. MCTV will train faculty, staff and students how to use editing equipment and cameras. Projects must be Meredith related. Some of the past projects have been:
Slideshows – Slideshows are a series of pictures accompanied by music and titles. Fire and Water, Mother/Daughter Tea and Father/Daughter Dance are among the several events that inspire student-created slideshows each year.
Orientation videos – If you are a freshman, you will go through many orientations, one of which will be to watch the Health and Fitness Center Orientation video. This was video taped and edited by students, faculty and staff. This kind of video requires a considerable amount of preperation and production time.
Thesis Videos – If you are presenting a thesis, you can be trained to make a video that supports your thesis presentation. This medium will be kept with your thesis in the Carlyle Campbell Library. This does not include a video recording of you presenting your thesis.
Video projects take a lot of time and preparation. Before you contact the Cable Administrator, please become familiar with this check off sheet.
Cable Administrator is available Monday - Friday 9:00am-6:00pm. Other times by appointment only.
