BACKGROUND

Sage Publications are developing extensive collections of educational videos for their Sage Video online catalogue. The videos can be accessed by university students around the world. The collections ‘support a range of levels, from reference content for research, to pedagogical content for undergraduate teaching, to higher-level academic interest material’.

We filmed and edited 150 Tutorial, Case Study, and In Practice, videos for three collections: Media & Communications, Politics & International Relations, and Psychology.

OUR APPROACH

Our producers organised the contributors, scripts, and storyboards. Our directors and crews filmed at numerous locations in the UK and Europe. The Tutorial and Case Study videos feature academics or authors talking to-camera, intercut with supporting images and graphics. The In-Practice videos feature interviews with specialists, intercut with scenes of them in action, in their field of work.

Our editors ensured that each video tells an engaging story, is editorially accurate, and complies with Sage’s brand style guidelines for titles and graphics.

THE RESULTS 

“I have had the pleasure of working with Sightline over the past year and I have been hugely impressed with their strong editorial values, relationship management with our authors and contributors, not to mention the final product. The Senior Producers are not only very professional in what they do but also bags of fun to work with!” MICHAEL CARMICHAEL, Video Publisher, SAGE Publications | Sage Video online
