We recently produced a promotional film for The Global Health Network, part of Oxford University, GHN spreads clinical research methodologies around the world to raise standards, particularly in the Global South.
They needed a film they could share internationally to raise awareness of their work and the opportunities available for medical research workers around the world. The film also had to work for potential funding body audiences as an introduction to the organisation and a celebration of the impact they have already made.
An early production challenge centred around where the filming should take place, given The Global Health Network has partners and members who can speak to its work in several continents. During the research stage, it became clear that GHN had developed the medical research methods and clinical trials with great success in Kilifi, Kenya.
The location offered us a cross-section of the contributors we wanted to include in the film, from community fieldworker researchers through to clinical trial laboratory managers.
