    ‘How to biohack your cells to fight cancer’
    TED Ed & UCL
     
    An absolutely stunning animated YouTube video explaining a new cancer treatment (CAR T Cell therapy).
     
    Rather than the standard, clinical, emotionless 3D graphics used in many biomedical videos, we created an immersive, manga-inspired, cyber-punk world of biohacking.
     
    We approached TED Ed to see if they would be interested in publishing it, they were incredibly impressed and decided to upload it - the first externally produced video TED Ed have taken.
     
    It currently has 350k views and very positive comments.
     
    Commissioned by NIHR University College London Hospitals Biomedical Research Centre.

    [Title redacted for now]
    [Client redacted for now]
    We've recently developed, written & recorded a pilot for a new science & history podcast for a US digital science & tech brand. 
     
    We can't share who or what yet but we can share that we brought together a very experienced team including Producer, Researcher, Studio Engineer and Hosts. Fingers are crossed for a series commission.
     
    The Best Thing Since Sliced Bread?
    (now a BBC Radio 4 series)
    We produced two episodes of this podcast before it was snapped up by BBC Radio 4 & BBC Sounds. sciencemedia.studio's Creative Director Greg Foot continued to write & host it for BBC Radio 4 and the extended podcasts did very well, with one of the episodes reaching #5 in the main iTunes chart!

    The podcast investigated the bold claims being made by promising products and our first episodes investigated:
    - Can a ‘Wake-Up Light’ really “keep your sleep cycle on track and brighten your winter blues”?
    - Can the “billions of good bacteria” in ‘Probiotic’ Drinks actually “make your tummy smile”?
