At Video@CDL, we thrive on designing video solutions for any teaching challenge. Our partnership with you begins at the conceptual stage, where we help establish your project’s message and learning objectives.

We also help you determine which of our video best practices is the most suitable for your production. With these goals in mind, our team acquires the video content needed for the final product, either in our studio or on location.

Not only must your project deliver its learning objectives visually, but it must also be heard clearly. Our production team will capture sound on-location or in the studio at the highest fidelity, and mix the music and sound effects in a way that reinforces your project’s message.

We will also help you decide if and when using a narrator is the most effective way to communicate with your audience. Rest assured, we listen very carefully.

During post-production, our producers make design and editing choices intended to communicate the learning objectives developed at the start of the project.

The final stage of the production process is where client-approved projects are mastered and readied for online delivery.
