Be as specific as you can about the goals and target audience of the video. What are you trying to accomplish with this video?


  • Do: “I’d like to create a video that we can share on social media that targets alumni that have never made a gift to Rider or come to an event on campus. The purpose of the video is to create engagement, try to speak to their “Rider Pride” that has been dormant. Should get them excited about coming back to campus. Maybe to see a basketball game or theater performance. We want the video to help increase alumni engagement and hopefully lead to an increase of giving down the road.”
  • Don’t: I’d like a two minute video of a donor maybe at a basketball game cheering and then sitting in the BLC Theater watching a performance. They could then be sitting having a cup of coffee in the SRC with a bunch of students. I’ve lined up five students for next week and would like to have some footage of the upcoming theater performance happening this Friday if possible. Video should end with a giving link.”
