Regent University Marketing has established a relationship with several vendors for video projects as well as radio and TV spots. We can provide you with an estimate for these services. Marketing can manage the project for you, but the same criteria and timeline applies as for other jobs. Regent Media Services provides Regent event coverage and DVD duplication. Please contact them directly for these services.
Yes, we create web animations if they are tied to a broader web project such as creating a flash animation for a school’s site redesign or providing an animation to be included in a microsite. We can also revise existing animations that we have previously created and can create Flash and non Flash animated banners for online advertising.
We do not create nor design PowerPoint presentations.
