Premiere Video Captures UMW’s Character

A new video gives President Hurley, along with some of the University of Mary Washington’s master teachers and talented students, a chance to tell the world about their school. The University’s first-ever promotional film is designed to advance UMW’s mission by enticing prospective students, touching alumni, and inspiring potential donors. It is getting rave reviews on President Hurley’s road trips. See it for yourself:

University Relations staff crafted the six-minute script, then worked with four-time Emmy-winning producer Jim Brown to coordinate production and direct narration. Brown and his New York crew spent three autumn days in Fredericksburg, recording interviews; collecting footage from science labs, art classes, club activities, and athletic practices; and capturing the qualities that put the University of Mary Washington in a class of its own.

If you are interested in showing the video at upcoming events, please contact the University Relations staff at (540) 654-1055.
