What was the brief?
The University of Roehampton wanted an animated student orientation film with a difference.
They wanted it to provide all the helpful guidance that new students might be looking for online, certainly. But they also wanted it to deliver that guidance by telling the story of a typical Roehampton student and the ups and downs they experience over the course of an amazing first year at the university.
How did we approach the brief?
Spectrecom Films was ideally equipped to deliver the client’s preferred approach of a sketchbook-style animation.
Ideally equipped because of the fact we own our own studios where the video could be shot.
Ideally equipped because we have the technical expertise in our filmmaking team to meet the challenges of such a project.
And ideally equipped because of our in-house creative team, who were able to turn the client’s ideas into a finalised shooting script that touched on all their key messages.
“We were tasked with a difficult job – to turn information our new students need when they first arrive on campus into something fun, exciting, creative and bite-size. From my first phone call to Olly, enquiring, to my final email with Chloe, receiving the final cut, the team demonstrated they ‘got’ the idea and, importantly, delivered the vision.”
“Everyone I worked with was as much invested in making our film excellent as we were, and worked extraordinarily hard to ensure our upmost happiness with the finished film. The whole team were exceptional from beginning the creative process, writing the script to filming and editing.”
“We have worked with Spectrecom before and achieved excellent results. That’s why, in our mind, there was no other filming company to use for our student orientation video.”
