Situation

ETH Zurich’s Society in Science – The Branco Weiss fellowship addresses young postdoctoral researchers throughout the world. The intention was to give potential candidates an idea of what it means to be a Branco Weiss fellow.

Strategy

Once we had realized that videos were a suitable means of communication, the fellowship’s directorate decided to commission a short documentary clip on the daily life, research, and main concerns of one of the new fellows.

Implementation

A camera team followed fellow Michael Nash around at his workplace in Munich and at the annual fellowship symposium in Lucerne. Report-style sequences are interspersed with interviews.

Result

Since the film vividly describes what it is like to be a fellow, applicants have significantly fewer questions about the fellowship.
