CSIRO – Virtual Work Experience Program

THE BRIEF

CSIRO, the Australian federal government agency responsible for scientific research, are on a mission to bring STEM skills to children in schools all across Australia.

In pursuit of this objective CSIRO launched the Virtual Work Experience Program to ensure that no student should miss out on the opportunities that STEM could bring, because of their location.

CSIRO wanted a video that showed the success of its inaugural Virtual Work Experience Program to encourage wider take-up from schools and individuals across Australia.

THE SOLUTION

Square Fish developed a series of videos that highlighted the success of the program from Tennant Creek, to rural Victoria and central Brisbane.

With years of experience working with students and non-actors Square Fish were in the perfect position to draw out key points to ensure we were able to get the best interview from our talent.

THEY SAID WHAT?

Owen Craig

Hamish and Square Fish are hands down the best video production company I’ve ever worked with. Fast turnaround, competitive quoting, and a super pleasure to deal with. But most of all, Hamish gets it right every time. Once the briefing is done – whether it’s a series of interviews, a corporate promotional video or a launch event highlights reel – the result is delivered fast and with just the right grabs and content selected. There is rarely any need to go back for a second edit. If I had to guess the Square Fish motto, I would say it’s “get it right first time”.

Hamish did an amazing job of capturing our family story so authentically. We are so pleased with the finished product and the response to our video has been overwhelming.

Square Fish have delivered some incredible work for our live music projects. Hamish and the Square Fish team were always accommodating and agile, which was essential to make our tight deadlines work. Despite some difficult timelines and moving targets, the content was always delivered on time, at consistently a high standard and met the brief. We wouldn’t hesitate to use Square Fish again in the future.

Hamish at Square Fish took on my project and invested his energy into making sure it met all my requirements. His ability to visualise and encapsulate the story and then put this into a video is a true art. The quality of the images captured in the short time frame was amazing and I would highly recommend Hamish to anyone looking to use his services.

Hamish is not only a fine producer of entertaining commercial videos, but is also a highly professional video storyteller. I have dealt with him for years and he excelled himself twelve months ago in producing a video for waverleystation.com. It communicated far better for Waverley than anything preceding it and attracted over 25,000 viewers on social media.
