Short films showcase research at the University of Bristol
Research and talent at the University of Bristol has been showcased in a new collection of 52 short films exploring topics from the complexities of volcanoes to witchcraft in the modern world.
The films, produced by Bristol-based Beeston Media and officially launched last night at M Shed, also document success of university alumni.
David Alder, director of marketing and communications, said: "The short films showcase the truly excellent and exciting things that go on here at the University.
"They say that a picture can paint a thousand words and I hope that these short films will really impart just some of the magic that makes Bristol the world-leading university that it is."

Highlights of the film collection include a look inside the Centre for Nanoscience and Quantum Information, which houses some of the quietest laboratories in the world.
The film captures the capabilities of holographic tweezers, complete with cyber-glove, which enable the user to squeeze something as tiny as a cell, which could play an important role in checking cells for disease.
Computer Science graduate Jenny Griffiths talks about how the technology she developed led to the creation of her own fashion search engine, Snap Fashion, which enables users to upload their own images to search for similar garments online.
Meanwhile, medical student Richard Igwe performs a rap he composed as part of his studies as he explores the emotional side of being a doctor and a patient.
All the films are available to watch on the University of Bristol's website.
