University of Winchester students praised for producing promotional videos.
3:35pm Saturday 5th January 2013 in News
UNIVERSITY of Winchester students have received glowing praise from local employers after producing a number of promotional videos.
The media production students created the films as part of their degree course, with clients including Winchester City Council, Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, The Army Training Regiment, Vanguard Helicopters Ltd and the Morn Hill ‘To Honour a Promise’ Project.
Among the tasks set was a short film celebrating ‘the Alfies’, the city council’s staff recognition awards.
Simon Eden, chief executive of Winchester City Council, said: “It was a very professional job and done well.
“It was certainly a far more effective way of showing what we’re about than any number of PowerPoint presentations.”
The Morn Hill Project saw students make a film to be shown at schools and to raise public awareness of a planned memorial to British, American, Commonwealth and allied forces of the First World War.
Graham Mole, media lecturer at the university, said the projects would prepare students for a future as producers in the real world.
