7 Segments of A School Anniversary Video
Teacher Interview Videos
Teacher interviews are one of the most common video segments for a school anniversary video. Many schools feature their teachers to showcase the people who serve as the backbone of the school.
This corporate anniversary video by SMU’s Less Kong Chian School of Business (LKCSB) started off with interviews from the deans and lecturers who shared the personal significance of the school in their hearts.
We liked that SMU conducted a series of corporate video interviews with the staff and students of the LKCSB which was nicely pieced together to form a heartwarming story of the school’s growth over the past decade.
Student Interview Videos
Student interview segments are the school equivalent of a customer testimonial video. When parents hear reviews from the students who have a firsthand experience of attending the classes in school, they are more likely to trust the school’s reputation and ability to provide a proper education for their child.
When filming a student interview segment, we recommend having your students prepare their answers beforehand. This way, they will be less nervous when on camera and can smoothly deliver their interview segment. Consider working with the student to familiarise them with their script before the filming day.
This anniversary video was shot to celebrate Nan Hua Primary School’s 100th year. In this video, the school interviewed their students who shared their experiences preparing for their anniversary celebration.
In between the students’ interviews, we noticed that the video made use of B-rolls to provide a variety of shots for the viewers. B-rolls are additional footage that provide context to the interviewee’s speech. For this video, the B-rolls were shots of the anniversary event itself, showcasing the student dances and Wushu displays they had prepared.
School Alumni Interview Videos
Compared to students and teachers, alumni provide a different perspective of the school as former students who have since graduated and moved on to different stages of their lives. Alumni usually share how different the school is from when they were there as students. These changes highlight the growth and improvement of the school over the years.
For this anniversary video, alumni of Dunman High School came back to share school life was like for them during their schooling days.
If required, our videography team can provide a teleprompter at an additional cost for your interviewees to read off their script while looking into the camera.
School History Videos
Another common segment seen in anniversary videos is a highlight of the school’s history. these videos will narrate the school’s founding story in chronological order, spotlighting the key milestones that the school has experienced over the years like a change in principals or the relocation of the school campus.
Juying Secondary School’s 25th-anniversary video began with a short highlight of the school’s journey from its founding days. This was an apt opening as the video told the story of the school in chronological order, following the many changes of the school throughout its 25 years.
Will you be having a celebration concert for your school’s anniversary? If so, consider filming an event highlight video to capture the best memories of the celebration. This way, you can preserve the celebration even after the event is over.
Event highlight videos can also be used for publicity and marketing purposes. This video can be used to create post-event publicity buzz, keeping the community talking about your school’s anniversary has ended. We recently wrote about how you can make use of your event highlight video for marketing purposes.
Stamford American International School celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2019 with an in-school celebration event. This anniversary video that they filmed showcased the highlights of this exciting celebration they had hosted.
This video was less than 2 minutes long, which is short and succinct for an event highlight video. We would recommend that your event highlight videos be less than 3 minutes long to match viewers’ increasingly short attention span. Keeping your video short helps to ensure that viewers do not lose focus and click away from the video.
In this Hougang Primary School Anniversary Highlight Video, our event videographer covers the key moments of the celebration. Juxtaposing the footage with speeches and background music.
School anniversaries are meant to be a celebratory occasion for the school. A more light-hearted segment that you could consider adding to your school anniversary video is a compilation of the well wishes from your staff, students and other members of the school.
To celebrate their 25th anniversary, Nanyang Polytechnic invited students, lectures and even Mediacorp celebrities to give their well-wishes to the school.
CCA and Special Programme Showcase
Aside from featuring the school’s main academic programmes, schools also feature their CCAs and special programmes to showcase the opportunities available for a holistic learning experience.
Like the Stamford American International School, this anniversary video by Chung Cheng High School (CCHS) was also an event highlight video of their 80th-anniversary concert held by the many performing arts CCAs in both CCHS Main and CCHS Yishun.
