Production Services

Production Services provides the University with a variety of multimedia production support, which includes creating marketing and recruitment videos, live streaming commencement ceremonies and photographing.

Policy

All live-event recording and photography requests are required to be made at least two weeks in advance of your event date.

Video Guidelines

To request recording of an event, you must email productionservices@sxu.edu with a completed Video Project Proposal Form. Video project requests are prioritized based on schedule and recruitment purposes and will be considered based on the decision of the Office of University Relations.

Please keep in mind that the production process can be complex and time consuming and may require a face-to-face meeting even after submission of the proposal form, as each project is unique. Requests will be serviced in the order that they are received. Considering this, all project requests will be reviewed and are not guaranteed. Production Services reserves the right to reject a request or change the completion date due to project requirements.

Department/Division Permission

Faculty or staff members must obtain signed video, photo and/or audio release forms from all recorded participants. The requestor assumes all responsibility for approvals before the request is submitted to University Relations.

Photo and Video Disclaimer

Saint Xavier University (SXU) reserves the right to use any photograph/video taken at any event sponsored by SXU, without the written permission of those included within the photograph/video. SXU has complete ownership of such pictures, videos, audio, etc., including the entire copyright, and may use them for any purpose consistent with its mission for an unlimited period of time. These uses include, but are not limited to, illustrations, bulletins, exhibitions, videotapes, reprints, reproductions, publications, advertisements, any promotional materials to publicly advance the University and educational materials in any medium now known or later developed, including the Internet (i.e. website, social media, etc.).

A person attending a SXU event who does not wish to have their image recorded for distribution should make their wishes known to the photographer, videographer and/or the event organizers at the time of the event.

By participating in a SXU event and by failing to notify SXU of your desire to not be photographed or videotaped at the event, you are agreeing to release, defend, hold harmless and indemnify SXU from any and all claims involving the use of your picture or likeness.
