Using video to connect with the local community

Chocolate Films worked with the Francis Crick Institute to document a community learning project. Construction in the King’s Cross area begun in July 2011, so the project aimed to connect the residents of the local area and inform them about the institute in a fun and engaging way, as well as to celebrate the building, which now houses over 1, 500 scientists from across the world.
