Instead of any spoken audio we developed a narrative in which the audience would be immersed, allowing for the completed suite of films to have a warmly aspirational feel that is both epic and intimate.
Filming over seven days in and around both campuses, we had the luxury of being able to concentrate a day of filming per ‘icon’, to really capture both their academic and social lives.
One highlight (especially for our camera operator and surfing enthusiast Kieran Hodges) was filming in the sea with student entrepreneur Nathan John, both of them on surfboards with Go Pros and a setting sun. It was lucky this project had a comfortable amount of shooting time as they didn’t return from the waves for hours.
The overview has since been repurposed for release as a cinema advert and has been promoted on video-on-demand services such as All 4 and ITV Player.
