A team of Film, Theatre & Television students and Centre for Entrepreneurship students who took part in a creative marketing competition for a car company are hoping to rev up enough public support to help them win first prize.
The team of students produced two videos currently being shown on the YouTube channel of Spanish car maker SEAT – but they need the public to help by watching their videos.
The group’s work is up against videos produced by five other universities. The video with the most views by October 9 will be declared the winner.
The seven-strong team – Aurelija Stankunaite, Robbie McKane, Charlotte Hobday, Calum Peters, Deborah Reid, Lydia Taylor and James Green – has already impressed judges with their work, which followed a creative brief to help the car maker see itself from a different perspective.
Two of their finished films – featuring a young couple having fun while painting their home and a small boy letting his imagination run wild playing with a toy train set – are now featured on SEAT’s official website and on the car company’s YouTube channel.
