 UWS Knowledge Transfer Video  To Be Screened Today At “Knowledge Links For Business” Dumfries

I’m travelling to the UWS Crichton  Campus in Dumfries today to a  Knowledge Links For Business workshop at the Ashton Hotel .It will be the first public screening of our  UWS Contemporary Screen Acting student’s   KTp  marketing video for Cream O Galloway organic farm  .   I have blogged in the past about the University Of The West Of Scotland’s Knowledge Transfer projects under the auspices of South Of Scotland Business Solutions.
In these three month long  projects,
 In our innovative new Screen Acting Programme, Work Based Learning for screen  acting students is embedded through an authentic  relationship with a  commercial client. The first of these projects is  coming to fruition with the creation of this  new Web Video marketing  the Findlay family firm,  Cream O’ Galloway. COG is  a  family run Organic Farm and Ice Cream manufacturer who are at the cutting edge of sustainability and the  progressive treatment of animals.     http://www.creamogalloway.co.uk/
COG  welcome over   60,000 patrons  a year to their amazing Visitors Centre on the shores of Wigton Bay, and  amongst their plans are a 1.8 million pound state of the art milking barn for their herd of organically reared  cows and calves. 
Over the past three months, our team  of performance students from the Contemporary Screen Acting Programme at UWS have been  travelling down to the Galloway coast for a series of research and production visits,   armed with  cameras and sound equipment, 
 They  shot  hours of material, both on location and in our Ayr studios , and today  a rough-cut of the  video will be shown for the first time at  the Knowledge Links For Business workshop in Dumfries.  Once our client Wilma Finlay of COG had OKayed the video we’ll be launching it online next month. I’ll  whet your appetite by showing a few stills from COG.See below .
The two other Knowledge Transfer projects with Dumfries and Galloway SMEs  ABC Recruitment and ACAD are going on apace. Final shooting of the two projects is  taking place this week at  our UWS Studios in Ayr, and once the post production process is finished,  all three projects will be online by the end of June .
I’ll blog more news as it happens
