Dream sci-comms brief for the Crop Trust

The international non-profit Crop Trust is dedicated to conserving and making available crop diversity. And its sci-comms people came to us with quite a task – taking the concept of the conservation of crop diversity in genebanks and making it interesting and relevant to a mainstream audience. In just two minutes. We love a challenge so, naturally, we jumped at the chance.


We say:

At Scriberia we feel really lucky to be working with people at the cutting edge of science communication. Not only do we learn a lot, but we get to help to raise awareness projects and research which are genuinely important to the future of our planet and our existence on it. So it was a pleasure to work on such an important project for the Crop Trust. It was a dream brief. Giving a sense of great natural diversity was key to the story and we particularly enjoyed exploiting the creative potential of a rich and beautiful range seeds, plants and environments.

The level and beauty of the animated illustrations was in a league of its own. As a result we are asked so often “Who developed that gorgeous video for you?”.

They Say:

Scriberia not only tackled the challenge but the final product exceeded our expectations. From our initial contact with Scriberia until the delivery of the final product, we were impressed with the professionalism of the services rendered. We have worked with other animation producers and with Scriberia two aspects really made them stand out. The level and beauty of the animated illustrations was in a league of its own. As a result we are asked so often “Who developed that gorgeous video for you?”. Our staff even want to hang posters of some of the illustrations on our walls. The second aspect which impressed me was the recording of the voiceover. With other producers, we are simply provided with the final audio track. With Scriberia, I was virtually in the studio even while being hundreds of kilometres away. Scriberia invited me to join in on Skype so I could work directly with the narrator and ensure that I was happy with the voiceover. A great team developing a most impressive product at a very fair price –  we’re thrilled we chose to work with Scriberia.
