Project: To capture an ancient VHS tape for Tom Maloney
Details: Tom had a VHS tape that while an old format has content that is still valuable today. He needed to eliminate the need to bring his VHS player to locations just so he could play this video. We captured it in the highest quality. We gave Tom versions that would play on most computers he would encounter at venues he speaks at.

Project: Dyson Undergraduate Council needed a yield video for accepted freshman
Details: DMIG worked with the DUC and Janelle Tauer to create something the department would be proud to send to accepted students. We were able to produce this video in a very short period of time because of the organization put into it by the DUC. Videos need a decent amount of thinking about the audience and the execution. Interviews in various locations were possible with a coordinated scheduling effort.

Project: Create a video to promote a new diversity program
Details: Cindy van Es and Alicia Orta-Ramierz needed a video to promote to a very specific audience of community college transfer students to consider careers in agriculture. We showcased three CALS students who highlighted why Cornell and CALS were a great fit for them. This video was storyboarded by the students and faculty involved.

Project: To capture the details of the TCi annual event
Details: TCi held their first annual event with a variety of guest speakers and graduate student presenters. We used two cameras to record the event in Warren B25. We captured audio from the individual speakers so they could be flexible and move about. In the edit we added the PowerPoint slides to give the online viewing audience the full effect of being there.

Type: Video Abstract
Project: Aija needed: a video of herself talking about her new journal article for Wiley's Online Library.
Details: A video abstract is a short video of the article author narrating a journal abstract. We hope to many of these for Dyson faculty. These videos are simple but highly valuable. So much so that Wiley Online requires them from their authors.

Project: Ravi could not attend two conferences at once OR could he? He just needed a video to present his thoughts at the second conference.
Details: Ravi noted the things he wanted to say. He could have used a teleprompter but was familiar with the content that he just spoke to the camera. Recording in his office, we broke the sections into 5-6 logical pieces - the longest being 4.5 minutes the shortest about 30 seconds. We edited those together with a "lower third" (his name and title at the bottom third of the screen) and exported a file that was very high quality (to be projected to a large conference keynote crowd) but was still able to be sent via the inter-webs to the conference organizers in Indonesia.

Type: Interview Guest Speaker
Project: Vicki Bogan interviews industry experts
Details: Vicki Bogan interviewed Jordan Celkupa and then later Bill McCarthy for their expertise in financial planning. She gave the interviewees a series of questions ahead of the interview. We setup our temporary studio in the ILR conference center where she then spent 30-40 min interviewing them one on one in a very relaxed environment. Vicki has some of the content on her site but the balance of it is hosted on the eClips/Prendismo sites where it is available to Cornell faculty and students anytime.
