The REFINERY has been busy editing the talks from the Barts Multiple Sclerosis Research Day for Patients and their Families, which was held at Church House Conference Centre at the end of March 2011.
Despite accidentally coinciding with the massed unions anti-cuts protest march which brought most of central london to a standstill, the research day was unaffected, with a few people who would otherwise have joined the march tweeting their support from inside the venue.
As well as filming the events of the day, we also created some quirky, fun films to introduce some of the key speakers, and were also involved in creating some humorous animations and cartoons to help explain some of the concepts.
It also saw Friend of the Refinery, Simon Donald (“Him Off The Viz”) give a short talk about his experiences making a documentary with us (see this page for the trailer) and the world premier of a specially commissioned animated sequence (“MStermind”) by Oddball Media.
The day was a resounding success with positive feedback from attendees and contributors alike.
The talks and films can be found on our youtube channel and also on our own event web page.
