The Cameramen: Using Video at the U of M
They are superheroes of video, translating U mission, coursework, research, and ideas into snippets for our visual culture. And they’ll be sharing their best practices with us. What makes good content? Do production values matter? How do I get from camera to finished product? What resources does the U have to offer?

Paul Bernhardt is known widely in the University as a producer and director and is an emerging force in the filmmaking community. He is the Digital Learning Group's source for video, audio, and photography used in websites, modules, and courses. He produced and directed 70 minutes of finished videos for the popular undergraduate course, Alcohol and College Life and co-wrote the award-winning Public Jobs: Private Data training. As an independent filmmaker, he teaches editing at Independent Feature Project in St. Paul and has shown his work at festivals and on television.

Colin McFadden works as a Media Specialist for CLA, creating software to help make media easier to use, and educating students, staff and faculty about the rapidly changing media landscape. He also works hands-on, creating video content and helping support the CLA TV Studios in Rarig Center.

Justin Ware began his career with the University News Service in March 2007 as a public relations representative. He has since become the assistant director for broadcast and new media, working to expand the use of multimedia communications by creating video news releases, b-roll and a variety of other visual and audio material. He also works with university departments to enhance their media presence, conducts media training for University experts and helps connect local television and radio stations with University sources.
