The VUELCO project consortium came together in 2011 for a multi-disciplinary attack on the origin, nature and significance of volcanic unrest from the scientific contributions generated by collaboration of ten partners in Europe and Latin America. The project was to last for four years and was funded by the European Commission.
The VUELCO project looked primarily at understanding possible causes of volcanic unrest.
Part of my role as Project Manager was to showcase the work appropriately on-line and this involved designing and creating the project web site. I travelled with project researchers to various field trips and conferences across Latin America and Europe to capture the research work undertaken by the academic staff. I also filmed interviews with the academic staff and postgrad students and edited the video to create a number of short films to showcase the research work undertaken.
"The videos submitted by the VUELCO project have provided an excellent insight into the research work conducted and have set a new benchmark for reporting projects of this type."
