Creating meaningful content through video is essential to building reputation and reach. Our goal is to maintain quality and quantity of video production while leveraging our resources in a cost-effective way.

To fulfill your video needs, here are three options:

  • In-house staff: Use a staff videographer from within your division, college, university or one of the A&M agencies.
  • Outside vendors: A list of approved video vendors is here. Vendors not on the list that meet qualifications (quality, terms) can be considered. Please request three quotes, including scope, timeline for delivery, and fees. Long-term contracts are discouraged. When a vendor is selected, please notify Chad Cockrum, Director of System Videography, at 
  • Texas A&M System Video Team: The Texas A&M System produces 90-second Chancellor videos as well as a television show, “Around Texas With Chancellor John Sharp.” Please complete this form if you want your project considered for one of those platforms, or if the first two alternatives are unavailable to you.

    Please review each of these questions to help determine production objectives.
    • Who is the audience and who will see the finished program?
    • On what format/delivery system will audience view the production — tape, broadcast, website, DVD, YouTube or other?
    • What information or impression should they bring away from the program?
    • What are the key points and key information, teaching/learning points to be covered?
    • What is the working title of program and/or series? What is the preferred running time of program?
    • What is your availability during the process? (You need to allow time for meetings, organizing some aspects of production and sometimes to be there for shooting and editing.)
