Walk the Stage at Levin Ballroom
May 4-6, 2021
Brandeis has partnered with POSE/Elevin Studios to create a fun, dynamic and interactive experience as part of the graduation celebrations. From May 4-6, both production companies will be stationed in and around Levin Ballroom to capture photos and video footage of undergraduate and graduate students crossing the Commencement stage as a complimentary gift.
The Commencement Stage
This is your moment! Sign up for a 30-minute window from May 4-6 to come to Levin Ballroom and walk across the Commencement stage. You are welcome to wear your cap and gown. Caps and gowns will also be available on loan. A replica of a Brandeis diploma will be available for students to carry across the stage and a member of the university’s senior leadership team will greet you and acknowledge your achievements!
Under Brandeis University’s current health and safety guidelines, Levin Ballroom can accommodate 10 students at one time.
Complimentary Photo and Video Shoots
Before crossing the stage, students can have a professional portrait taken as a headshot for their LinkedIn profiles or resumes. Graduating students should be dressed in business attire. These portraits will be taken outdoors so students can be photographed without masks.
Students will then have the option of being photographed and video recorded as they cross the Commencement stage inside Levin Ballroom to celebrate their graduation from Brandeis.
A video booth will also be set up in Levin Ballroom for students to record a short testimonial, farewell message or favorite moment at Brandeis. Students will receive the footage in real-time as a keepsake and will be able to share it on their personal social media accounts.
Staff from POSE/Elevin will be onsite to assist students with obtaining their customizable photos and videos, including via email, scanning or printing. Files obtained from Elevin will also be available for use as GIFs and Boomerangs.
All photos and video footage are complimentary. There is no additional cost for Walk the Stage.
Elevin Studios will combine select footage from the video booth and Commencement stage crossings into a montage that will be played at the finale of the main virtual Commencement ceremony on May 23.
Students who have learned remotely this semester are also welcome to record and submit short (15 seconds) testimonial video footage for consideration. Cap and gown is optional. Please email your video file to Eli Jacobson by attaching your file or providing a download link. Please include "Testimonial montage submission" in the email subject line. Submissions are due May 7.
