Student life at the University of Nottingham

I mentioned in James’ introduction post how impressed we were with his application video. It was great to see a summary of the student day with some creative and interesting shots.

We asked him to extend the video with some additional material – including sports and societies, more shots of campus and the city, and a taste of hall life, while retaining the original quirky and polished feel. This is the result, which we were very happy with!


I think James will agree in that the toughest part of the video was the very end shot! We wanted something which reflected on the rest of the video, showing the students in the video having a good time, but we weren’t specific with ideas. I believe they tried a range of shots (including juggling – gutted that didn’t make it in!) before settling with the simple laugh around the table.

The video is part of a series of videos which have been included in the 2015 Undergraduate Prospectus. Here’s a screenshot from the opening pages of the prospectus – James’ video is featured top right! As part of making the video for us, James and his friends in the video got their photos taken by our photographer – living the celebrity lifestyle!



I hope James learnt a lot from putting this video together for us – and that we can find some more projects for him to work on in the future!
