Real World and Service Learning Clients

Nothing provides a richer learning experience than creating a project for a real world client with tangible needs. IU Media School MS Documentary/nonfiction students can take on a project for T576, T584, or as part of their capstone body of work. P354/J560 students can create animated PSAs and informational videos.

Check out the organizations below for opportunities.

If you take on a client video, it's important that you:

  • Proactively communicate with the organization, and copy your instructor on key emails (starting project and concluding it).
  • Communicate with your instructor, Jim Krause, who will do whatever he can to help you produce a successful project.
  • Give time to refine and revise the project. When a first draft is complete, send a copy to your client organization for approval and make whatever changes they request.
  • In your reflection or summary critique, please add a few paragraphs about what you learned about the organization and how you changed or grew from working on the project.
