The Next Best Thing… Viral

D&AD Student Gold Pencil for Web Streaming Winner 2003

As part of my multimedia course at Leeds College of Art & Design, we were given the opportunity to take part in the D&AD student awards and make a response to a relevant brief. I got to together with a course friend Rosie Neave and we worked on the Thomas Cook brief in the Web Streaming category. This was I guess in hindsight to become what is now classed as Viral.The Brief was to make a video for an over-50s audience to tie in with a new online video service they were offering with the help of Tiscali. The service would allow you to experience a holiday before you committed to it.

We came up with the idea and filmed it together. I then did the design, video and sound editting of the final piece as well.

This won 1st prize for web streaming in the 2003 D&AD Student awards
