Professional Multimedia Department at Northwestern University
“Lights – Camera – Simulation!”
Imagine having the help of a professional film production crew in your healthcare simulation lab. Video orientations for students to your simulation lab space? eLearning for advanced students? Training videos for new educators? Promotional videos for external users and center marketing? All possible with the help and support of a professional multimedia team!
Craig Adams, Manager of Communications and Immersive Media at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, shared some of the wonderful productions his team has accomplished for the Innovation Lab at the Center for Simulation Technology and Immersive Learning.
Notice the expert use of steady framing, panning work and camera focus which always guides the audience’s attention smoothly for excellent scene composition. As well, the wonderful pacing of the piece demonstrates a true understanding of editing flow and the importance of integrating musical scores. Watch another great video which demonstrates the team’s “showcase reel”:
Thinking of producing your own videos? At the Gathering of Technicians event earlier this year, we trained 85 technicians in the basics of film production. Next August I am sure we will repeat the training somehow, but in the mean time be sure to watch my “do it yourself” tutorial on the basics of video production for your sim lab.
