GEMS Nations Academy

About this project

The brief was to create a short, promotional film to show to prospective parents of the GEMS Nations Academy, the newest campus in the GEMS network. The client had a very strong academic network and brand identity, and I worked collaboratively with our creative team to establish a narrative that conveyed their core values and messaging. Our film portrays young people as curious, engaged future leaders. I worked with the Creative Director on establishing the narrative approach to the client, setting up an ambitious two day shoot in Dubai, casting talent and script editing the client voice over script for a better flow.
