Promotional University Video Production

Aberystwyth University

Watch Video

Suite of Department Videos

We were very excited to hear that we’d been chosen to produce the upcoming Aberystwyth University‘s promotional video. And even more so, to hear that there was in fact going to be 28 in total! We love North Wales and spending time there as part of our work is just heaven on earth for us.

The brief was to create an aspirational video for each department at the University, in English and Welsh, showcasing the facilities as well as showing the breath-taking scenery of the area and all it has to offer to its students.

Aberystwyth University is based on the West coast of Wales. The University has just been voted as a Top 5 UK University and best in Wales for student satisfaction, which made it a fantastic project for the whole team to be involved in and we’ve loved every minute.

It’s been a long time since ‘some’ of us were studying at University but it was a great filming experience and brought back some good memories for the team.

Filmed over two weeks in May, travelling down to the Welsh coast was a big bonus for the sea-loving Soup crew and Creative Director, Stew even managed to catch some waves with an early morning surf!

More recently we’ve produced an International/ Corporate Video in Welsh and English, from the same footage for a video campaign to attract students from overseas, which has been very successful.

I have worked with Soup Creative for a number of video projects for my organisation. Stewart and the team were hard working, innovative and really enhanced the project with their concepts. From the beginning, the team were extremely organised and efficient. Every project is given a 'project manager' who is your go to person. The team were always quick responding to emails and happy to help and answer any question (even it was a stupid one).

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.

I would highly recommend Soup to any organisation who are looking to boost their ROI through the use of rich media/video content. Looking forward to working with them again soon.
