We decided early on that we wanted to create 4 separate films within the same campaign. Each would tell a story of a student and focus on their personal journey to education.

 

The casting was difficult, screening over 50 potential students. It was worth the search though as we found 4 amazing current BCU students who fit the bill exactly.

 

We worked with each student to build a narrative around them and to bring their story to life. Each film had its own vibe, bespoke special effects including a flaming hockey stick and flying notebooks.

 

Locations ranged from showing off the university, hockey fields, climbing centres and tv studios. Nothing was off limits when it came to telling each student's story.

 

To tie in with a cinema campaign the University wanted to run, we also created an overall film combining the stories of all 4 films.
