GENIUS

Directors Ian & Dominic Higgins  
Producer Nigel Martin Davey

Working with Positive Edge Education Ltd and producer Nigel Martin Davey, we have produced a series of short dramas with the aim of inspiring all students to achieve success even when faced with great obstacles, illustrating the scientifically proven techniques and methods of Growth Mindset, a revolutionary approach to learning that encourages effort over results.

 

In GENIUS, young Albert Einstein is a rebel, a free thinker at a time when the German education system does not allow individual thinking, or for a person to dream. 

 

But Albert is a dreamer. Things come to head when the resolutely free thinking Albert is expelled from school, just as his father’s business fails. But somehow, Albert finds the determination to not give up and in doing so becomes the world’s most celebrated genius whose dreams will one day revolutionise physics and change the way everyone sees the world forever.

For each of the three characters chosen as subjects for these educational and inspiring films, we decided to produce a short drama to illustrate how the celebrated individual used growth mindset principles to achieve success against the odds, and an accompanying “explainer” video to highlight the scientific facts behind growth mindset.

We're very proud to have been a part of such a revolutionary approach to education and learning! You can take a more in-depth look behind the scenes on our blog. To find out more about growth mindset please visit Positive Edge's website.
