During October, the Media Lab successfully delivered two projects for Smile Education – an education recruitment agency based in West Midlands.
Katy, the Managing Director of Smile Education, and University of Worcester Entrepreneur in Residence, met the Media Lab at a recent student networking event and expressed her interest in working with the Media Lab. Katy already knew that the Media Lab had already successfully produced a number of videos for the University of Worcester. The Smile Education brand is growing fast in West Midlands, especially in Birmingham and it was felt that there was a need to have their own promotional videos about the business to showcase to potential clients and secure the best teaching talent in the Midlands area. The brief for the project was to reflect the quality of the companies offering, the fun culture of the organisation and the quality of its staff.
The Media Lab’s first project for Smile Education was involved with filming the video of the annual community event. The Family Day is an annual event bringing all employee’s family members and community together and provides a wide range of fun activities for local children and families in the local community. The company also rewarded its best employees for their dedication during the event and successfully raised £1250 for Birmingham Children’s Hospital and Sandwell Young Carers.
During September, we also went on to produce a corporate video for Smile Education at their head office in Birmingham and had a wonderful working day with all people working there. Media Lab members filmed a number of interviews and their activities on that day then edited into this brilliant video demonstrating how fun it is to work for Smile and the values it promotes.
