The brief: to make a new promotional video to showcase the School of Engineering and Informatics.
The challenge: to make something that encompasses the main subject areas in the School (Engineering, Product Design and Informatics) that isn’t just the usual university promotional video.
And so we started with a list of things. Big things (CAT engines), loud things (the jet engine in the Thermo-Fluids Research Centre), unexpected and microscopic things (snail brains anyone?). Cognitive things, mechanical things, electrical things, flying things, neural things, computational things, programmed things, language-based things, media things, digital things, evolutionary things… it was a really long list.
Co-written, produced, directed and edited between Laura Tovey and Dr Phil Watten, and crewed by Phil’s team in the Media Technology Lab; Dr Ben Jackson and Dr Patrick Holroyd, we have spent the best part of a year collecting footage of ‘things’ from around the School to create what we hope showcases the technology, creativity and ingenuity of the School.
This is what makes us different. Watch it here from Monday 16th December…
