Behind the Scenes
We didn’t need to source any actors for the shoot as Aberystwyth University students volunteered to take part in filming, they were all great and were happy to get stuck and helped to give the videos an authentic feel. Ellie one of our producers also got stuck in to help out with filming and enjoyed reliving her days of being a student.
‘Half man, half machine’
To help with filming on the move, we partly shot with a steady cam. As we were filming for a full week, Stew used a back brace to help hold the steadicam which involved an arm extending from his back over his head. Ellie recalls how this was a personal highlight as surrounding people looked on confused as Stew looked half man half machine.
Filming took place over various departments in Aberystwyth but the team’s favourite was heading down to the coast to film a geography field trip on the sunny coast of Aber. Another favourite was heading to the computer science department to watch the holographics equipment.
