The Government Information Center (GIC) is taking requests from State Agencies via their Public Information Officers (PIOs) to create high quality videos.
At the GIC, our mission is to connect citizens to their government, so we are excited to grow our capabilities with video and graphics to better inform the public. Video is a fast growing segment for consuming information. Another goal is to help reduce friction between government and citizens, and to help agencies communicate more effectively with the public.
We are only accepting briefs and requests from PIOs, so please reach out to your agency PIO to find out more details. If you are a PIO, and need more information, please contact us to learn about our request process. Remember, projects must have an intended audience of the public (not just internal-facing), and we ask for sufficient lead time so we do not rush the creative process.
Below is a list of projects recently completed by our Video Team.
Video Project Highlights:
Delaware’s Winter Kick Off – The State of Delaware wants to celebrate all the wonderful things winter brings to our lovely state with a winter kick off video! Whether you are already a “Delawarean”, potential resident or visitor we hope this video helps to get you into the spirit of winter as well as encourage you to check out all the wonderful sites Delaware has to offer during this season!
Delaware’s Paid Parental Leave Law – The Department of Human Resources, Division of Women’s Advancement, and the Governor’s office asked us to create a video highlighting the landmark policy allowing 12 weeks of paid parental leave for state employees. The video launched on April 1 – the first day of the new law – on agency social media channels, and embedding to state websites.
2020 Delaware Teacher of the Year – We sat down with Rebecca Vitelli, the 2020 Delaware Teacher of the Year to learn more about her approach to teaching and the work she has done in her classroom at The Colwyck Center.
Hall of Fame of Delaware Women – This year, GIC worked with the Office of Women’s Advancement and Advocacy to create videos honoring the six inductees into the Hall of Fame of Delaware Women. One such video highlighted the work of Drewry Fennell, Chief Officer for Strategic Communication and Development for Christiana Health System. The 2019 induction ceremony also celebrated the many accomplishments of Tania M. Culley, Superior Court Judge Jan Jurden, Maria Matos, The Late Blanche Williams Stubbs & Marie Swajeski in front of 350 attendees.
DE.CO Food Hall Ribbon Cutting – It’s Time Wilmington! This video was shot at the request of the Governor’s office to highlight the new and exciting things happening in Delaware’s largest city. This was shared on social media channels.
Prepare Well for Severe Weather and Natural Disasters – Made for Severe Weather Week in April, we worked together the Governor’s office and the Delaware Emergency Management Agency to shine a light on preparedness.
