George Heriot’s School – a heritage of golden learning

By - Richard - 1st October 2021

We have been working with George Heriot’s school in Edinburgh for the past couple of years now.

As part of their virtual Open Day for 2021, we produced this short video to showcase what the school can offer and to introduce the new Headmaster.

We recorded a collage of voices talking about different aspects of the school. This audio formed the structural spine to the video and over the top of this we included extensive footage of classroom activity, sport and aerial clips to bring it to life.

The school was recently voted the Sunday Times’ Scottish Independent School of the decade. We needed to produce a video that was worthy of this accolade and to showcase the exceptional education and co-curricular activities that the school offers.
