George Horne, Class of 2010 | Science Museum Film We Engineer

George-Horne_LonelyLeap Our 2010 graduate George Horne works as a Creative at LONELYLEAP – a film company with production teams in London and New York.  George was the Director and Creative Lead on a film called We Engineer (2014).  It was made for the Science Museum for its Engineer Your Future exhibition, which is to encourage young people into engineering and look at relevant careers in this field.

George said: “To be honest the Science Museum has always been one of my favourite places to visit in London, ever since I was a child. So having the opportunity to make a film for one of their major exhibitions was an honour. Within the project I developed and wrote the original proposal that won the tender, then directed the shoots and led the edit and post production stages. Millions of people visit the museum every year, so making a film with that sort of exposure is amazing!”  The Science Museum: “the film is aimed at children aged 11 to 14, designed to shine a light on the ingenious, albeit unknown work done by British engineers. Meet the real-life engineers making faster racing yachts, safer houses and smarter prosthetics…

… You can see their cutting-edge prototypes and models on display in the Science Museum exhibition, Engineer Your Future.” The interactive exhibition was launched last month by HRH Prince Charles and it will run for three years, until 16th Dec 2017, on the 3rd floor of the Science Museum’s Wellcome wing.  Entry to the museum is free and it is open every day from 10am to 6pm.
