PPM produced and directed videos for the Open University's introductory science course.
This OU distance learning module covers astronomy and planetary science; biology; chemistry; earth and environmental sciences; and physics.
PPM worked with Open University academics to shoot experiments in domestic settings - showing how students can perform experiments in their own home using household items.
The complex two-camera shoot involved location lighting and slow-motion capture.
Above all, the quality of the explanation - both visual and oral, was of paramount importance.
The videos illustrate a series of questions aimed to encourage scientific thinking - such as ‘Can you make a hole in water? and ‘How do you know what is alive?’.
OU qualifications are modular in structure; the credits from this undergraduate module could count towards a certificate of higher education, diploma of higher education, foundation degree or honours degree.
