We created a video for the I’m A Scientist project, which is like school science lessons meets the X Factor! Scientists and students talk online via the website. They both break down barriers, have fun and learn. The students get to vote for their favourite scientist, deciding which scientist gets a prize of £500 to communicate their work, learning about issues around funding as they do. And of course, being exposed to a wide range of real-life scientists!
The challenge was to create a clip which communicated to project to the three key teams within the project; the students, the teachers and the scientists. We suggested creating three different clips, each based on core footage, but giving each one a slightly different focus on the material.
The project is sponsored by The Welcome Trust and produced by the cool guys over at Gallomanor.
Earlier this week I called up a client for a catch up and was greeted with “I was going to call you today, I have a new project for you…” That’s never bad to hear!
Earlier in the year, Kaplan Law School contacted us with a challenge, after being referred to us by another client. They were pitching to Law firms who were interested in sending graduate trainees on Kaplan courses, and wanted a way to capture the experience of studying at the school. After discussing the project with them we came and filmed on the last day of exams. We cut the footage into a film that was encoded for use within a PowerPoint presentation, which played with great success at their pitches:
Anyhow, the new project . They now want us to edit the material for a student facing clip to attract students to the course. So we went back to the interviews and pulled out slightly different material, showing how one day’s filming, if you have the right strategy in the way you film and archive your material, can be used for multiple clips:
Today we filmed the students of Kaplan Law School as they finished their last exam. The School is based down in Borough and offers GDL, LPC and BVC legal training.
The students were in high spirits as they’d just finished their final exam and were more than willing to speak to us about their time at the school. They seemed to very much like the Kaplan style of traditional lectures rather than online learning.
The footage is going to be put together into a clip to promote the school.
