Milton Hershey School

The Client 

Milton Hershey School based in Pennsylvania, USA, is one of the world’s best private school. They offer top-notch education and positive home life to children in pre-kindergarten through to the 12th grade for families of lower income at no charge.

The Challenge

As part of the School’s international service, education and global awareness initiative, a group of 17 students and six adult staff members were to visit Ghana.  The visit was aimed at teaching the student’s civic responsibility, leadership, ethics, empathy, and collaboration by participating in a variety of service-based activities while in Ghana.

Eagle London Agency was awarded the contract because of our international outlook, video production expertise and our in-depth understanding of the cocoa sector in Ghana. Our task was to capture the visit on camera while highlighting the experience, service and lifelong memories that the children created.

The Solution

Prior to embarking on the project, we met with the client’s representatives in Ghana and delivered our strategy for the project. Our solution was to have our production crew follow the students from their arrival in Ghana through to their departure. They would capture the expedition in the form of a vlog to showcase the day to day activity of the students, personal accounts of their experiences whilst highlighting the history of both Milton Hershey school and Ghana.

The Outcome

We produced a 30minutes documentary on the visit capturing each unique moment, taking feedback from the students, their tutors and members of the communities they visited. The finalised video was used by the students for their presentations on the trip and has also been posted on the school’s website.
