Jun. 25, 2020

Meiji University creates a series of promotional videos, “Incredible Senseis at Meiji University,” and a landing page to tell the world about its research, which leads the field not only at home in Japan but also abroad. Using English-language narration and subtitles in English and Japanese, the new videos introduce the work of Professor Homei Miyashita and Yoji Kuroda.

The videos make the results of our university’s cutting-edge research, which aims to contribute to society, easily accessible to and engaging for a broad general audience, rather than simply to other researchers. They combine animation and explanations by the researchers themselves, paired with catchy music and narration to create highly ingenious and attractive movies.
