One Day at Duke - extended cut

4,305 views 4 weeks ago
The "One Day at Duke" extended cut draws on more than a thousand photos, videos and messages that were submitted online by Duke University community members worldwide on a single day -- April 19, 2013. On that day, Duke University students, faculty, staff and alumni were invited to submit materials for the video on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and other social media platforms using the tag #OneDayAtDuke. Submissions ranged from a photo of a wild horse near Duke University's Marine Lab in Beaufort, N.C., to a snapshot of doctors meeting in Rwanda.

"We wanted this snapshot of Duke University to be authentic and engaging, which is why we turned to social media and the wider Duke University community," said Michael Schoenfeld, Duke University's vice president for public affairs and government relations. "Duke University is about momentum and action, something the One Day at Duke project captured better than any script could have done."

Denise Haviland, executive director of the Office of Marketing and Strategic Communications at Duke University, was the executive producer of the spot. James Todd, video manager in Duke University's Office of News and Communications, produced the ad. It was edited by Carson Mataxis, senior visual media producer in University Development and News and Communications. Freelance videographers Stephen Garrett and Tyler Northrup joined Todd and Mataxis in capturing key shots.

Promotion of the #OneDayAtDuke online campaign was led by Cara Rousseau, social media manager in Admissions and News and Communications.

The music in the commercial is from the Durham-based band LiLa and was recorded live by Julian Jacobson '13 and the Duke University student record label Small Town Records.

Numerous Duke University staff, faculty and students helped facilitate the production of the video.
