Video production times

To support faculties and schools in developing high-quality video production, all filming, post-production, production and revisions are completed by CLIPP multimedia staff. All videos produced will comply with the brand guidelines where appropriate.

When planning your design jobs, please allow sufficient time for discussions, development and revisions. Due to current workloads and projects, we request you allow at approximately 4 - 6 weeks notice before your project is due for delivery. If you have an urgent request please feel free to request a job, and we can determine our availability.

This table is a quick guide to help you estimate your pre-production planning and provide a time estimate for the production phase of video projects. These times are intended to be used as a guide only and estimates may vary depending on the project requirements and scope.
