Media Consultations

At any point during a project when you feel media content may help in achieving your learning objectives, please feel free to contact UBC Studios for a consultation meeting. UBC Studios staff with backgrounds in both media production and education will be happy to discuss your objectives and guide you through the process of creating media content, including deciding on:

  • Grant Proposals – If you are planning to apply for educational or research grants such as TLEF, NSERC, etc. and foresee media creation as part of your proposed project, UBC Studios can help you with your proposal.
  • Scope, Production Format, and Budget – Considering your project objectives, UBC studios will help explore different options and determine the scope of your project, recommend a format, and put together a budget.
  • DIY vs. Professional – Through media consultation, we can together determine whether you should create your media content yourself, produce it professionally, or use a combination of both.

Email UBC Studios at ubc.studios@ubc.ca to book a meeting.
