Faraday Institution – battery researcher spotlight – Dana Thompson

This video of PhD student Dana Thompson is one of our favourite university filming projects. We produced 4, 2-minute videos to showcase the experiences of Faraday Institution PhD students and how their research links to real-world applications. The aim is to inspire secondary school children and undergraduates to consider careers in STEM in general, and battery research through the Faraday Institution in particular.

Pre-production was a key part of this project. Each interviewee was contacted for a pre-production call before the university filming took place. This allowed our producer to begin building a relationship with each person as well as gathering the kinds of details that can be overlooked or omitted in the high-pressure of an interview. We provided advice on their preparation for filming, which made our job of supporting interviewees at the shoot much easier.
