cie media team 2019

Media Team 

Our team is made up of senior-level UNCW Film Studies and Computer Science/Digital Arts students. While our main function is to act as a resource for CIE Tenants, we also like to give back to the community by providing media and digital arts services for local small business and UNCW faculty/staff. Our portfolio ranges from promo videos for clients' websites to Kickstarter videos for fundraisers to recorded seminars and Business Focus Groups here at the CIE and graphic design to app development. Our mission is to grow our own personal and professional experience while also helping local entrepreneurs grow their businesses.

You can see what we're up to on our Facebook page, and see examples of our past work on our Youtube channel.

Our media services are located in Room 1130 and our digital arts services are located in Room 1129 within the CIE building.


Our services are available to co-working tenants or CIE members at the Startup Level of $125 or higher.

 Pricing (effective July 1)

  • Initial fee: $200 annually
  • Videography: $25/hr (per team member)
  • Photography: $25/hr (per team member)
  • Editing: $25/hr (per team member)

There is a $200 annual fee and up to 10 projects a year may be completed for your established business or startup.

Once projects are approved and admin fees paid, interested parties will sign a contract agreeing on the payment of hourly labor rates for Media Team members working on the projects (see above).

We do not charge equipment rental fees. However, if a client has a special request for equipment we do not have, then we will charge rental fees for equipment we have to rent from an outside source.

Any projects already in progress are subject to the previous rate of $15/hour (per team member)


The CIE Media Team has a set quota for projects each month and per client. We approach requests on a first-come-first-serve basis, based on the results from our online media request form. If we are at quota, we will place you on a waitlist and keep you posted on our progress. Our team will not complete requests that give less than two weeks' notice, either orally or written. We will no longer work on blooper reels, highlight reels, or any project that does not involve setting up a shoot date, with the exception of fixing edits from projects created by the CIE Media Team in the past.
