MAKING AN

Academic Video

that works

Producing academic video is an excellent opportunity to promote your institution and everything that you have to offer. The power of video allows you to communicate your key values, as well as visually showcase your facilities.

Video interviews provide a great platform to share student experiences, and capture a sense of ethos in your institution – without coming across as corporate or too sales driven.

A DIFFERENT KIND OF

Academic Video

Sometimes showing someone talking to the camera just isn’t enough – times are changing and a lot of audiences want to see something that’s more visual and engaging,
more cinematic.

It can be hard to see as a traditional institution but well edited and high quality video can be used to give your organisation a modern, attractive and sophisticated look.

If you’re offering any sort of technology driven prospectus or conducting research then you need to align your marketing with the cutting edge approach you take with your work!

Talking heads have been used for a long time to promote academic institutions, and with good reason – they’re often the best way to showcase a leading member of faculty, capture the dean discussing the proud history of the university or have a course leader explain directly to the audience what to expect from their degree. They can be simple, and effective – if they’re done well.

Dragonfly knows how to make a talking heads video look great by getting the best shots in good light, with an interesting backdrop. We’ve also got a broadcasting and interviewing history so we’re experts at getting the most out of anyone on camera and creating talking heads videos that wont have you nodding off!

LONDON

School of Economics

We produced this 2D animated video for the London School of Economics. Animation doesn’t have to be childish or cartoon-y – this video proves that effective motion design can be successfully tailored to appeal to a more grown-up audience.

Eleanor Holles

School

Back in 2016, Dragonfly established a relationship with the Lady Eleanor Holles’ school in Middlesex. Since then, we’ve been their sole supplier for all video production requirements – from talking heads videos, to event filming.

The techniques employed by our team achieved a relaxed, honest and human video content. Despite the subjects being teenagers, we were able to avoid any self-conscious awkwardness.

Association of

Accounting Technicians

Dragonfly were commissioned by the Association of Taxation Technicians (AAT) to produce an animated explainer video that outlined the timeline and training process of one of their trainee accountants.

We took inspiration from the concept of ‘moving forward’, creating the character ‘Sam’, who stays in the centre of the screen throughout the animation – building the environment around him with various illustrated assets.

“Dragonfly are such a fantastic group of people to work with. As well as being hugely creative and professional, producing work of excellent quality, we quickly felt we could trust them to achieve what we wanted. They genuinely connected with our what our institution is about and their enthusiasm for what we do comes through in spades in the beautiful films they produced for us; by the end of the process they felt like extended members of our own team! We’ll definitely be working with them again and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their services.”
