MS Research Day


On 31st January 2010, the MS research team based at the Neurology Department at Barts and the Royal London Hospital held their inaugural Research Day for Patients. This was a chance for their scientists and clinicians to speak directly to patients and their families about the work they do in the laboratory and the clinic.

The Refinery attended and filmed all of the talks and lectures, editing them down into bit sized chunks for easy internet consumption. The schedule of events with links to the films can be seen HERE.


How To Engage an Audience

We have been working recently with MIDDLESEX UNIVERSITY
 Product Design and Engineering Department and their Design Consultancy, Red Loop.

The REFINERY provided a day of basic training in camerawork, a brief editing tutorial, and a masterclass in editorial thinking – or how to get your information across as a story. Using both our Panasonic P2 cameras for teaching, and MDX’s own Sony Flip cameras we engaged the students by showing how a “make do and mend” approach to filming in the field can result in great films, even with very limited equipment.

This will benefit their Jua Kali project in Africa, and allow them to tell their story to the widest possible audiences.
