Video Production Services (VPS), a division of University Communication, provides faculty, students and staff of Coastal Carolina University with high-quality, well-produced video and television productions to help tell the stories of CCU. The Department of Video Production Services (VPS) is located in Hampton Hall at 108 Tom Trout Drive on campus. Call 843-349-2890 for more information.

The mission of the VPS team is to:

  • provide video needs for telling the stories of CCU;
  • provide video service that increases the value of CCU and reflects the positive image of CCU; and
  • provide other video production requests directly related to (or that are beneficial to) CCU. These services will be performed as requested by faculty or staff when feasible.


1. University academic and administrative clients using University-appropriated funds will be charged for the cost of materials used, travel and other directly related project expenses, excluding labor. Additional charges will be assessed for after-hour production services.

Video cameras can be checked out at Kimbel Library to facilitate the taping of a class. Also, lecture capture units can be requested through ITS.

Requesters are responsible for providing both the rough lead-time schedule and first draft of the script. If students are to appear in the video, the requester will select students, help prepare the students, and assist with communication and coordination of students to ensure they show up for scheduled appointments. VPS staff will assist in training the students for their roles and will work with requester to refine the production schedule and script. To request a video, please put in a work order with
