    x1  First Part Filming Promo (2 days filming)

    x1  First Part Filming Promo (3 days filming)

    x1  First Part Filming Promo (4 days filming)

    Idea Brainstorm

    Details-

    • Promotional Video showcasing first-party filming of students engaging in Industry Club assignments across the disciplines of Mechanical Engineering and Chemical Engineering (Additional days of filming allow for a more diverse array of B-roll captured due to student’s projects scheduled on separate days)
    • Targeted to businesses looking to sign up for membership in the Industry Clubs and increase placement and post-grad job opportunities for students
    • No Voiceover, instead, text captions will be used so future edits will be simpler if any information becomes outdated
    • A Script for text will be created by Narce Media and agreed upon by The Industry Clubs
    • The optional addition of an interview with a staff member, business and/or student and their experience working with The Industry Clubs to be included in use alongside the B-roll

    Suggested Shots-

    • Aim to feature the journey a student takes at university by joining The Industry Clubs and conducting research, learning, and successfully gaining graduate level employment at the end
    • Following a project start to finish (i.e. the drawing of a car, followed by 3-D printing of the car, finishing with a shot of the students building and driving the go-cart on Aston’s campus)
    • Sexy, exciting shots of lab work (i.e. a student looking into a microscope, going into a shot of the cells, the cells transitioning into a project the students are working on in lab coats during an assumed placement or job experience provided by the business)
    • Cogs turning in a machine, a student working on machinery moving the cogs/wrench/machine in university, transitioning to collaborative research between the Students and businesses, transitioning to the student in a placement in that business and moving the same cogs/machine in uniform
    • Showcase the quality of students by getting them to speak on camera, talking about how The Industry clubs have been able to aid in developing their skills, following projects from start to finish and bringing credibility to the calibre of students that businesses gain access to
    • “Enter a network of companies” (Company logos appear on the screen in succession)
    • “How it works” (Followed by a visual, text-based process overview)

    Suggested Themes to Capture-

    • “Collaborative”
    • “Innovative”
    • “Looking toward the future”
    • “Developing youth talent”
    • “Creating the next generation of business”
    • “Creative Engineering”

    Option 1: x1  First Part Filming Promo (2 days filming)

    1-2 Minutes in Length

    • Two days spent on first-party filming dedicated to projects either planned within the curriculum or staged
    • One day dedicated to filming Mechanical engineering students
    • One day dedicated to filming Chemical engineering students

    Option 2: x1  First Part Filming Promo (3 days filming)

    1-2 Minutes in Length

    • Everything in Option 1 plus an additional filming day to allow for more B-roll captured of the students and their projects
    • Including an additional filming day will ensure plenty of B-roll content for future videos, edits, and provide a more versatile array of shots to be included in the video (i.e. featuring different projects and research conducted on different days within the University’s schedule)

    Option 3: x1  First Part Filming Promo (4 days filming)

    2-3 Minutes in Length

    • Everything in Option 2 plus an additional day of filming to allow for interviews of current businesses involved in the Industry Club
    • This can be travel to one business’s office or it can be arranged to have multiple businesses come to Aston for one day to conduct bulk interviews for more content and return on investment
    • This footage can also later be used to create video case studies

      Visual design.

      Cameras

      Up to 3 piece camera set up shall be used. Dependant on filming requirements we would use Canon Cinema camera’s (C200 / C100) or Sony (A7S range) for more cinematic styling. 

      B-roll

      Where appropriate we would integrate animation, graphics and ‘B-Roll’, supplementary footage to add to the story

      Audio design.

      Sound FX

      Sound FX shall be used where appropriate to draw the viewer deeper into the experience, Some FX could include: interactive sound design, risers, bass drops, appropriate ambient sound 

      Music Track

      Impactful music track which compliments the style of video will be chosen. Changing music tracks to compliment the mood if required – e.g. a more sombre sound track during a challenge being depicted and a more uplifting track during an achievement. 

      Social optimisation.

      Subtitles will be added to all versions to ensure maximum engagement for those viewers who are watching without sound.

      We will ensure the video deliverables are given in multiple dimensions and are fit for purpose when distributing on each social media platform, for example: 9:16 ratio for Instagram TV/Stories & 4:5 version for Instagram posts and Facebook posts, 16:9 for LinkedIn. (see diagram)
