Our Summer 2019 Student DEBP Project

During last summer’s mini heatwave. Our Studio worked with five talented students from various schools in the local area, to create a promotional video with music and clay-mation for the Derbyshire Education & Business Partnership (DEBP).

The project had it’s challenges from clay melting, students melting, software crashing and equipment not compiling. The project ran for one morning a week for 8 weeks so was very demanding on scheduling production and filming. However, we all had great fun working together on the project and there is a great result of the video which is now on the DEBP’s new website .

Post-production was the more difficult part with availability of students to return to complete various pieces, voice overs and extra artwork. We did however manage to get a game in the video, which one of the Students – Dylan, had been working on as an extra piece.

All in all we are all very pleased with the result. You can check it out now on our YouTube channel
