Buxton Campus


The brief

We collaborated with Bristol-based creative agency The Real Adventure to produce a film for Buxton University. The film had to showcase key courses, a vibrant social life, feature their campaign strapline ‘This Is Our Classroom’ and be completed within a four-week window. It also had to stand out online and appeal to a young demographic.

The shoot

We were very resourceful and asked the right questions beforehand so we only brought the right equipment needed and could travel light. We kept our crew size small meaning we were more agile and able to move between locations quickly. We shot the whole film in 3 days and used a mixture of actors and students at the University. We commissioned a bespoke and rhythmic soundtrack integrating sounds taken from the activities in the images and used motion graphics and strong colour grading to really bring this piece to life.

The result

The Real Adventure were so pleased with the outcome of the Buxton Campus promo they went on to commission the University of Derby promo.

“Doubleshot impressed with their creative ambition, and really added value to our creative concept. Their organisation and experience made the pre-production phase a breeze and the visual effects applied in post added to the polished, impactful piece of creative.”
