Since 2006, with the support of Pfizer Inc, the Royal Society has chosen an African scientist(s) to win the Royal Society Pfizer Award. As well as providing funding for the winner's research project, the aim of the award is also to promote scientific capacity building in Africa. To mark the 10th anniversary of the award, the Royal Society commissioned us to make a celebratory film to show how the award has helped, and to show the achievements and innovative contributions that Pfizer-Award-winning scientists have made.
Our team reviewed and selected the best and most relevant footage and soundbites from over twenty hours of archive material. We also recorded new Skype interviews with current and previous winners and nominees of the award. Further production work included producing, directing, filming Sir Brian Greenwood's interview, editing, extensive sound-design and creating the animated graphics in this beautiful film.
