Marketing and Communications

Video Production

The University has a video production framework in place to help members of the University produce high-quality, professional pieces of video.

Who can produce video for me?

The companies below have proven that they can produce high-quality video content across a range of different formats. They work with the University brand guidelines and work closely with other framework partners to ensure that video content links up with and complements other campaign materials (posters, flyers, advertisements, etc).

Departments, colleges and research institutes/groups wishing to produce video for use on the web, via DVD at open days or events, or for dissemination on USB stick etc, should put together a project brief (see the guidance below), and contact the Marketing Team, who will be happy to help review your project brief and offer advice on which company would be best suited to your requirements.

For corporate video productions or commercial advertising, please contact the Marketing Team to advise.

We have been involved in some large film projects for the university. With a team of film crew, storyboard artists, editors and animators all in-house we can create ideas, storyboard, plan and source actors, locations etc. all in-house which is great for larger, complex projects. We also have a studio at our offices in Suffolk which makes us ideal for studio-based filming.
