iDeaWORKS is a Mohawk College incubation space for the tech, medical and advanced manufacturing sectors. To promote the iDeaWORKS program, Double Barrel was commissioned to produce four videos; one program overview video and three vignettes that focussed on businesses who have used the services iDeaWORKS provides.
iDeaWORKS is a research and innovation centre, where Mohawk staff, students and faculty collaborate with industry partners to research, design, develop, test, and commercialize new products and technologies. Projects span a range of sectors, but specialize in three areas: eHealth and mHealth, Energy Technologies, and Advanced Materials.
To tell the story of this wide ranging organization we interviewed faculty leaders, students and mentor businesses, combining a documentary style approach with a broadcast journalism sensibility.
By incorporating vignette style stories of companies and students who are utilizing the iDeaWORKS program, we were able to reach out to multiple potential audiences – government funders, businesses and students alike. The end result was four fantastic pieces that successfully highlighted the great work iDeaWORKS is doing in a fast-paced, entertaining way.
We were thrilled to be a part of this project – thanks to Mohawk College for bringing us on board!
