MMU Centre for Biomedicine // Corporate Video

MMU Promotional Video


As Head of Research Centre, Professor Mark Slevin wanted to make a very slick video with extremely high production values. He was keen to produce a tightly-scripted film which showcased his Centre’s excellent facilities and innovative work. Guille quickly came up with the idea of using a montage of travelling shots as a metaphor for the dynamism of the research centre. The camera would be in continuous motion, showing how the centre was constantly moving forwards.

We then met with the Biomedicine team to determine which aspects of the Centre’s activity should feature in the film. There was so much to say that, as is often the case, Jo’s job as scriptwriter was to cut right back to the essentials, the elemental message of why Biomedicine at MMU was so inspiring.

Jo and Guille worked together to draft a script and storyboard that worked harmoniously. Jo recruited actors and extras to feature in the scenes alongside university staff and students. She also sourced a makeup artist and a voiceover artist, with Professor Slevin and his team having the final say on whom to recruit.

Filming took place over four days at the university. Our team had access to labs, lecture theatres and research suites at very specific times, so careful planning of the filming schedule was crucial. To give the footage that extra wow factor, we asked our drone partners, Lunar Aerial Imaging, to film the brand new Birley campus building, which features a large scale MMU logo and looks very impressive on camera. The finished film has been used to represent the Centre for Biomedicine to global markets and has been very well-received.
