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.
UNLIMITED tells the incredible story of Wilma Rudolph who after contracting Polio as a child, defied the doctors that told her she would never walk again, without the aid of a leg-brace, to become “the fastest woman in the world” and the first American athlete to win three Gold medals in a single Olympic Games.
With all the films in this series, we extensively employed the use of chroma-keying (where we film against green or blue screen and then remove the background to superimpose the actor in a digital set piece or filmed location).
But, with Unlimited some of the scenes were shot at a real race track and for one shot where Wilma runs towards the camera, we didn’t have a green-screen large enough to cover the entire background. We decided to rely on using the natural greenery of the trees behind the actress to remove the background. We were very pleased with the results.
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.
