Visual Storytelling

At Azusa Pacific University, we believe in the transformative power of human stories. A story can move, empower, teach, humble, and inspire individuals and communities. The Division of Strategic Communication and Engagement’s visual storytelling team is tasked with capturing the narratives of various alumni and current students, staff, and faculty on film.

We recognize that our community is the sum of the stories being lived out by the people in it. From the nursing alumna building hospice facilities in Kenya to the DPT graduate changing the way people work out at the gym, we work to tell stories of meaningful impact in the world.

Prior to pursuing any lead, our filmmaking team asks three questions about the narrative:

  • Is it TRUE to the individual and to who we are as Azusa Pacific University?
  • Does it offer something MEANINGFUL to the viewer?
  • Is it DISTINCT to Azusa Pacific?

Our team is on the lookout for stories of APU community members (past and present) who are doing amazing things and making a difference in communities locally or around the world. If you would like to submit a story for consideration, select “Submit a Story” below.

For those interested in creating their own videos, we encourage you to review our Video Production Toolkit (PDF), which outlines our general standards and guidelines for video productions created on behalf of Azusa Pacific University.
