The Science Media Production Center is a professional video production unit working within International Programs of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) at Cornell University. We produce non-fiction science-based films and videos for clients across the University who value the importance of visual media for science communication and education.

Event Recording and Live Streaming

Since 2011 our event recording and live streaming services have captured more than 400 Cornell events for archive and distribution to audiences worldwide. Our clients release these videos through Cornell outreach channels like CornellCast, as well as through their own websites and social media pages.  We also feature our client's videos on our YouTube channel. This work supports Cornell University’s commitment to public engagement and public impact, strengthening the land grant mission of the university.

We offer unique video packages specific to each client's needs. Your event's video will include slides, branding, and other media used during the event.  For the most popular events we can live stream the video to your website or breakout-room in real-time, bringing Cornell’s events to the largest audience possible.

Science Advocacy

The Science Media Production Center supports Cornell research projects through the production of science advocacy films and animations for use by the general public, donors, and project partners.  This involves seeking out the real-world implications of research through dynamic storytelling and interviews.  This content can be used as part of your broader communications strategy to promote the significance of your research objectives in social and traditional media outlets.

International Work

We use media to tell the stories behind Cornell’s research, wherever in the world that may take us. This involves bringing the personal stories of the beneficiaries and stakeholders of Cornell’s research into the public spotlight. From small-holder farmers’ eggplant plantations in Bangladesh to the wheat research fields of Ethiopia, we capture the human stories that drive Cornell’s research at home and abroad.
