Ministry of Design Vs Massachusetts College of Art and Design

In March, the Ministry of Design had a visit from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design Students. Our 4 adopted members of the Ministry, went around Edinburgh to find triangles in the landscape and architecture and then produced a wee animation of the whole experience. THANKS USA

the human chain

Lovely little video to round off a friday! Advert by Nike, 'the human chain', describing the 'universal link we all possess through movement' and the importance of perseverance to success. Nice marriage of visuals and soundtrack, thanks to The Hours and their track 'Ali in the jungle' - also a nice video. Bon Weekend!

We were lucky to have help from a film student Shaun Glowa and a performance costume student, Elle Wilson who helped us with set design, props, outfits etc.The day went brilliantly. We are currently in the process of editing so will post it up as soon as its finished!
