The Seven Hills School
The Seven Hills School applied for and received a grant from the EE Ford Foundation to design and launch a series of immersive seminars focused around some of the most pressing issues facing humanity.
The Civic Engagement Seminars will take place during the Upper School’s May term, an experiential learning opportunity that takes place during the week after formal classes and exams come to an end. All grant recipients must submit a video describing the challenges their project hopes to solve.
We worked with Seven Hills to develop a story-board and outline following the leadership team’s process of designing the Civic Engagement Seminars. We interviewed the teachers and students involved in the design process and shot b-roll footage of students engaging in activities and discussions on significant cultural, political, and environmental issues.
The resulting video not only highlights how Seven Hills intends to leverage the EE Ford Foundation’s generosity, but also captures the ethos of the Seven Hills community by displaying the twin values of Seven Hills’s mission: educate and prepare both the hearts and minds of students to meet the challenges of the modern era.
