We work with academics and universities to promote and explain your research and departments.

We’ve made dozens of films for universities about research, as well as facilities, courses, and open days. We understand the academic sector as well as the needs of UK Research and Innovation to promote Impact and Knowledge Exchange. Our films have been made as collaborations between universities, Research Councils and industrial partners.

WHY VIDEO FOR THE ACADEMIC SECTOR?

  • Videos are a window into the research of a team or department,

  • Videos open up interest and opportunities for potential students or future partnerships and collaboraters.

  • Video abstracts of journal publications support, compliment and increase engagement with research,

  • Videos appeal to new students learning about departments and their areas of expertise,

  • Video lets more people know you are world leaders in your field.

 

BIODIVERSITY ASSESSMENT STANDARDS

Global biodiversity is under threat. Policy makers require good information to decide on measures to protect it. Araújo et al. reviewed biodiversity modelling techniques to devise standards for biodiversity assessments, published in Science Advances.

This video was commissioned alongside the publication of the paper to reach a broader audience for the research.

 

BUILDING BETTER BRAIN SCANNERS

Not all hospitals can offer every kind of brain scan that patients need. Scanners require a database of what a normal brain looks like, but scanning healthy patients to acquire this database raises ethical problems.

Researchers from the University of bath and RUH hospital devised a clever method for transferring health brain data from one kind of scanner to another using artificial ‘ghost’ brains.

 

WHAT IS RADAR AEROECOLOGY?

The development of Radar in World War two allowed ecologists to study animals in the air like never before. Today it is still one of the most important tools available to aeroecologists.

Sophisticated radar tools allow ecologists and conservation biologists to study animal migration, changes to ecology with planetary change and animal disturbances from light pollution.

 

FATHERS FRIDAY

Fathers Friday is a day when fathers and significant males can attend school with their children to engage more with their learning.

Researchers at the university of Bath have shown that engagement of these fathers, grandfather, uncles and others in the children’s learning can significantly improve their performance in school.

 

QUALITY OF LIFE

Researchers study how Quality of Life is measured across the world.

Quality of Life is important to everyone, but getting a precise meaning and understanding of it is difficult. Culture plays a big part in how people see thrown quality of life, but many commonalities also occur. Mental health, independence, mobility and sexuality are all important factors in quality of Life. Professor Susie Skevington discusses her research in this film for the University of Bath.

 

DEATH AND SOCIETY

The Centre for Death and Society at the University of Bath is a multidisciplinary research centre, unique in scope and breadth of research around death and dying.

We made a video promoting their research to help them reach new collaborators and generate interest in their research among members of the public.

George’s understanding of the target audience and knowledge of both academic and healthcare settings was really valuable.
