Science Centre Launch Event
Staffordshire University asked Humanoid to shoot a highlights video for the opening of their new £30 million Science Centre. The video needed to introduce the building, interview key guests and cover the day’s ceremonies.
We sent three separate camera crews to provide multi-angle coverage of talks, as well as simultaneously shooting interviews and shadowing tour groups. The edited highlights follows the day’s events in order.
Staffs used the video to tell the wider world about their newest facility, releasing an abridged teaser to create an online buzz before the full launch. The video was also used to promote Stoke’s developing University Quarter.
Humanoid captured a momentous day for Staffordshire University and its University Quarter partners this Friday, as Stoke-on-Trent’s state-of-the-art Science Centre was officially opened.
Double Olympic gold medallist and Staffs graduate Andrew Triggs Hodge presided over the opening ceremony, culminating in a spectacular blaze of day-time fireworks and showers of confetti. A flagship for the university, the Science Centre boasts world-class facilities for students of forensic, environmental, biomedical and sports sciences, biomechanics and psychology.
Friends of the university were invited to tour the facilities after a demonstration of molecular gastronomy by MasterChef 2011 winner Tim Anderson, who used liquid nitrogen to create two frozen breakfast dishes: white coffee ice cream and beans on toast sorbet. Technology on display included the university’s new scanning electron microscope, DNA sequencing facilities and molecular optics laser microscope.
Humanoid’s three camera crews captured the day’s excitement, producing a series of videos to commemorate the opening and showcase the Science Centre’s facilities, purpose and potential.
