Ideating Workshop

The ideating session took place on Thursday, 24 Jan at Oculus. We were delighted to see competition participants from Arabic, Chinese and Russian joining the discussion with Sam Colman, our presenter, together with native speakers and the video competition team members. The discussion started from the video, which has inspired Sam to learn foreign languages.


We looked at some key aspects of the video that could be borrowed by the participants in their own videos. The discussion centred around two key questions:

  • What themes can we draw on for our own videos?
  • What drew you to your chosen language/languages?

We had further brainstorming of video ideas in small groups within the languages and exchanged ideas across the languages. Sam’s general advice is:
