Awards Week 2014
Staffordshire University asked Humanoid to provide video coverage of their Awards Week, including a highlights edit, individual interviews with the week’s honorary graduates and a Diary Room to record personal video messages for social media.
We expanded our usual two-crew coverage to include timelapse photography and aerial video, capturing the week’s events from a new perspective. Diary Room messages were uploaded overnight, and the highlights were released on Staffs’ YouTube.
The Diary Room was consistently popular, attracting interest and traffic each day from graduates and well-wishers. Our annual Awards highlights are among the most popular of the University’s video releases and launched on the homepage of Staffs’ website.
Another summer, and another splendid week of Staffordshire University graduation celebrations at Stoke-on-Trent’s beautiful Trentham Gardens.
As ever, Humanoid were at the heart of the action providing the event highlights videography, producing a summary video of the awards with interviews from students, staff and honorary graduates reflecting on the week.
Continuing our tradition of raising the bar each year, Humanoid’s new remote camera drone captured the first ever aerial footage of the awards village. The Big Brother-style Diary Room proved as popular as ever, with messages from students, friends and well-wishers – even the new Chancellor himself Lord Stafford stopped by to record a message of congratulations for all the graduates. All clips were made available within hours through Staffordshire’s social media channels.
The sun shone on the festivities all week, as Staffordshire graduates in the traditional academic robes enjoyed champagne, took part in photo opportunities and of course the traditional hat throw!
