case study

This was a wide-ranging commission by Blackheath High School to produce a number of videos for its virtual open events.

The coronavirus pandemic forced many schools to think imaginatively about how to convey their messages and achievements. Blackheath High School decided video was the best way forward, using recorded taster lessons and information films to show prospective parents. Both parents and teachers were delighted with the outcome.
