UCL: View From The 38th
Working together again with our friends at Studio Blackburn, we produced an event film for The UCL School of Management to celebrate the launch of their new home in the heart of London’s business and financial hub - Canary Wharf.
38 floors above the city an audience of over 100 professionals had a wondrous far-reaching view of London at dusk, and were then welcomed to a captivating panel discussion on the integration of AI within business sectors, led by Deputy Editor of the Economist Tom Standage.
We hope you enjoy the View From The 38th.
