We were commissioned by the Technicians Make It Happen campaign to head to CERN in Geneva, Switzerland – world-famous home of the Large Hadron Collider – and gather some testimonials from young technicians to encourage others who might want to follow a similar career path.
One of our favourite interviewees was Victoria, who works in the vacuum department, testing the pressure inside vacuum chambers. She was a real natural on camera and enormous fun! The shoot was primarily based around a non-scripted interview which covered a whole range of topics which we then built into a four-minute film charting her career journey to CERN. We added to this by filming some documentary footage of some of her daily activities to illustrate key points, and more general shots of the site in action to show the dramatic location.
