Promotional films for Merchiston Castle School in Edinburgh

By - Richard - 4th September 2019

This summer we have been working with Merchiston Castle School in Edinburgh to produce a series of promotional films for their new website.

The main focus of these films has been a new ‘Hero’ film which is radically different to anything the school has produced in the past.

With the introduction of the new website, the school wanted to produce a new kind of film that was short, modern and fast-paced.

We wanted to try and convey the essence of the school in little more than 60 seconds.

The film needed to showcase the exceptional level of teaching but also focus on the huge variety of extra-curricular activities on offer to pupils and the school’s drive to find out what makes each pupil tick.

We also produced a new Headmaster’s Welcome film.

Other films we produced for the new website include a new rugby film as well as updated Tennis and Golf Academy films, an aerial film and three new housemaster films.

Please visit the new Merchiston website to view more of the films we produced for the school.
