UCL Wearable Exoskeleton


This is fantastic! Thank you and your team for your valuable help.Xenia Karekla, Accessibility Research Group University College London

We’re always up for a challenge, but when we were asked to explain how UCL hope to be able to rid the world of wheelchairs using a nanotechnology-based wearable exoskeleton… only one minute….we had to think really hard!

Our solution was a split screen showing both the idea and the research team explaining it at the same time.

And as this is a future-tech project, we also used animation (as the real exoskeleton is not yet built) to show both the construction of the material and give an impression of what it will look like on the human body.

We also wanted it to feel quite emotional, as to rid the world of wheelchairs is a pretty awesome goal, so we shot it with a shallow depth of focus to give it a really beautiful look.

Thanks very much to UCL for once again giving us total carte blanche to do whatever we wanted on this project. We’re so pleased you like it :o)


Liveable Cities

We are thrilled with the result! We can’t wait to get started on the next one! Thank you.Joanne Leach, Researcher and Project Manager, Liveable Cities

When we were asked to make a video for the Liveable Cities research project, we realised there was nothing we could film!

The project is about the transformation of current cities into better, happier, greener, smarter future-cities that are a joy to live in.  So, whilst we could have proposed it, we felt that filming the cities of today just wasn’t going to fit the bill.

Instead, we saw this as a good case for animation, combined with wise words from some of the key project team members.  The beauty of animation is that it’s only limited by your imagination and our two talented animators have plenty of that.  So Cavell got to work and our client was very happy with the result.


Fusion Energy

Thanks – the video has been great!Chris Warrick, Communications Group Manager, Culham Centre for Fusion Energy

With all the publicity for the full-scale fusion experiment, Iter, it would be easy to think the UK doesn’t have a fusion programme…but not only do we have a fusion programme, it’s supporting Iter and is already looking at the next generation of fusion tokamaks for better, cleaner, cheaper energy. When I was a kid at school I didn’t think I would ever see fusion power for real. So we were thrilled to be asked to make this film for such a truly awesome bunch of people.


These scenes, shot at EcoMobiel in Rotterdam, are part of a longer documentary about how noise regulations are being brought in for electric cars…..because they’re too quiet 😉


This is a short extract from a documentary for an academic client pondering the early harvests of 2011 and whether it was due to climate change or simply cyclical weather patterns.
