For the second year running, Spectrecom Films was the video production company chosen by the Greater London Authority to produce the opening film for its annual Mayor’s Education Conference.

The 2014 conference took place on 21 November in the esteemed arena of London’s City Hall. It saw educational experts and leaders from all across the capital coming together in order to share ideas and discuss the challenges facing London’s schools.

The film that Spectrecom produced to open last year’s conference went down exceptionally well – meaning there was more than a smidgeon of pressure on the returning team of director Matt Farman and producer Rob Jowers to not just repeat that success but to go one better and top it.

But if that sounds like a tall order then it’s one that Matt, Rob and the rest of the crew made short work of.

Commencing with an intro delivered by poet and Booker Prize-winning author Ben Okri, paying tribute to the capital as “one of the magic centres of the world; one of the world’s dreaming places,” the 2014 EduCon film has a sweep and impact to match its predecessor, while delivering greater insight into the featured initiatives.

Those initiatives were filmed at various locations around London, including Cherry Orchard and Rosendale primary schools and Gladesmore secondary school, the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Museum of London – thereby giving the conference attendees something really substantial to whet their appetites with.
