University Communications provides video services on projects that promote or highlight Appalachian State University (e.g., student/faculty research, program spotlight, student/faculty/alumni stories).

Video service request

Please use the request form if you want a video made. University Communications is unable to produce every video on campus due to the high volume of requests. In these cases, you or your department may choose a third-party production company to handle the project. We can provide you with a list of recommended businesses.

If you have any questions about video production contact University Videographer/Producer Garrett Ford at or University Creative Director Troy Tuttle at

Create your own video

University logo or titlemark

Use the official university logo or a department's titlemark to create an "end screen" for videos you make for Appalachian. It should remain on screen for a minimum of 5 seconds.

Obtain permission to record

Please download the release form, have it signed by the participants in your project (or by the appropriate parents/guardians if they are minors), and keep the release on file with your project records.

Transcripts required

If you or your department have a video produced, a transcript of the video's contents must be created to be compliant with the American's with Disabilities Act (ADA). If posting the video to YouTube, the program generates automatic closed captions, however, we recommend transcribing the audio verbatim to be as accurate as possible.
