The primary goal of Public Affairs Video Services is to
create short videos reporting on special events, research developments, expert
commentary and timely feature stories that can be used in Rice News, on
Rice.edu, for pitches to external news and social media outlets or to support
university-wide priorities. The videos are typically issued with the news
release or story and posted on the Rice YouTube channel http://www.youtube.com/user/RiceUniversity.
The videos may be used by schools, departments and other Rice
units for their websites, publications and presentations. If there are
questions regarding how to link to or embed a video, please contact the manager
of videography (x3535) or the director of web development (x6787).
Suggesting ideas for
Rice schools, departments and organizations should contact
their News and Media Relations team representative to suggest ideas for videos
just as they do for Rice News stories and news releases.

The Public Affairs' interview studio in the basement of the
Allen Center is used primarily for faculty interviews with broadcast media
outlets. The studio is also used for conducting faculty, staff and
administration media training, recording in-house interviews to accompany Rice
News stories and news releases, capturing comments by Rice experts for media
pitches and other video news projects produced by the News and Media Relations
team. Public Affairs does not charge a
fee to use the studio for these services but arrangements must be made well in
advance. Please discuss requests to use the studio with your News and Media Relations
team contact of the manager of videography (x3535).
