LAKERS TOGETHER: Grand Valley is preparing for successful learning experiences when classes resume on Aug. 31. Learn more about the plan for fall in this handbook.
THANK YOU for thinking of GVSU's Film & Video Production program for your media production needs! We appreciate your confidence in our students and program, and recognize the value of producing work outside the classroom.
A top priority of the Department of Visual and Media Arts is to provide access to equipment and facilities to the students taking our courses. As an academic unit, the Department of Visual and Media Arts and the Film & Video Production major are not equipped to support the activities of a video production facility. The equipment and facilities are reserved for student coursework and are not available for independent contract projects.
However, here are some options for your organization.
Each fall semester we offer a course, Producing for Clients (CFV 470), in which students produce videos and other media solutions to meet the goals of a non-profit client. Projects are field tested to ensure professional-level media production standards.
If your organization is interested in being considered as a client for a Fall semester course, contact Suzanne Zack.
Students with their own equipment are often interested in building their portfolio of professional work while earning a much-needed stipend to support their studies. Please email the following information, which will then be forwarded to all students in the Film & Video Production major. Those interested will contact you directly.
Include the following information in an email to Kim Roberts, Film and Video Production Program Coordinator.
You may want to consider creating a poster, which has proven to be a successful tool.
