We’ve been busy sorting our Magna Carta from our Woolsack and brushing up our parliamentary patter, to produce an educational video for Parliament’s Education Service.
The video’s made up of six short films, which can be watched individually or all together for a seamless viewing experience. Each segment explores a specific parliamentary theme including its history and structure, explaining the difference between Parliament and Government, describing how laws are made, the election and voting process, and providing top tips on how you can get your voice heard.
After scrutinising the brief, and debating our approach, we came up with a visual concept and narrative for each clip. We did two versions – one for a primary audience, and one for secondary. We took our proposal out to a couple of local schools, to get the seal of approval from the kids.
Once we’d finished scripting, storyboarding, scribbling, and sketching, the video was edited into its final version.
And we’ve just seen it taking top spot on the Parliament’s Education service website.
