Video Making Process

arrow pointing upUse the tabs in this box to see resource recommendations for each step in the video-making process.

You don't need to re-invent the wheel; plenty of educators and marketers have been successfully creating videos for ages, and have tips to share (see some examples below).

On this page:

Ask yourself a few basic questions about your video-to-be-- develop a smooth process for video production and sharing that could save you work and time in the long run. (see examples below)

Storyboarding is a way of pre-visualizing your video-to-be, and accounts for the visual, verbal, and chronological aspects of the work. This is how professional video produces and filmmakers plan their work!

When storyboarding or scripting your video, use these resources to write "for the ear" not "for the eye" to help you create an easy-to-understand video.

When speaking or writing, UTEP's CASS recommends the use of people-first language, as a matter of etiquette and inclusion. (Contact CASS to request a training for groups or individuals on people-first language.)
