The third of four films from the Women at Cambridge series I had the pleasure of shooting for Duckrabbit and The University Of Cambridge -“The ladder of academic success”
Part of the #RisingTide and #WomenAtCambridge exhibition at The University of Cambridge Library.
From the Youtube description:-
The impact of women at Cambridge is incalculable. In 1869, Girton College became the first women’s college at Cambridge, and the first in Britain, to offer residential higher education for women. But Cambridge University did not grant degrees to women until the late 1940s, the last British University to do so.
In this third of four films, co-curator of Cambridge University Library’s The Rising Tide: Women at Cambridge exhibition, Dr Ben Griffin, is joined by Girton Fellow Dr Dorothy Thompson, to discuss the impact of Muriel Clara Bradbrook, former mistress of Girton College and the first women to become a professor in the Faculty of English. Here, they look at a board game, created by Bradbrook, following the life of a female academic at Cambridge.

I really enjoyed hanging out with Dr Ben Griffin and meeting Dr Dorothy Thompson during the making of this.
It was also a real pleasure & honor (as it always is) working with Ben from Duckrabbit, who never ceases to amaze with his kind-hearted, open professionalism.
Shot on multiple Sony A7III’s with Tamron 28-75 and Sony 16-35, should you care about that kind of thing :)
