Electrifying Experience

by Syd Briscoe

Department for Education: “Apprenticeships” - 60s

Keen to address a recent apprenticeship slump, this 60" commercial from the Department for Education draws attention to the benefits of on-the-job training. Thus, a young cast find themselves energised - literally - by possibility as sparks of potential skitter over their morning routines.

The film plays like a modern superhero drama, with rapid cuts, judicious VFX, and energetic performances from the central characters who strut into the workplace. The reality may not be so straightforward, but it's still a slick way to drum home the advantages of hands-on placements.
