BINGE WORTHY

By Chris Nelson, University Communications

Forget Netflix originals and YouTube cat videos, if you’re looking for your next binge-watching marathon the University’s Marketing & Communication (UMC) team has you covered. The office recently hosted a campus film festival to show the best of its video production work over the past year – 36 short films you can watch via this link.

The films were produced on behalf of campus entities to help tell the stories of people and programs from across campus. The short features included stories on student housing, Utah Esports, the value of getting a humanities degree, and why you might not want to take personal advice from first-year students.

“We have worked hard over the past few years to recruit some of the best creative talent in Salt Lake City to our team. Local advertising agencies are taking notice, our in-house ability to produce top-notch video content is as good as you’d find at any local agency,” according to Jeff Bagley, UMC’s creative director. Bagley points to the 10 awards received by the office in 2017 from the University & College Designers Association (the most UCDA awards than any other university or college in the nation for the year).

While the office has plenty of work on its hands, Bagley says the team is always ready to meet with campus clients to discuss and brainstorm new projects.
