FNRS Awards

Portraits of Scientific Researchers

The briefing

Every five years, the Fund for Scientific research, awards the most prominent scientific researchers in the field of technological, social and biomedical sciences of the Wallonia-Brussels federation. The FNRS asked us to create portraits of these 5 scientists. These portraits would be broadcasted during the award show.

Our Approach

We wanted to focus on the personality of each researcher. Therefore we asked them to talk about one of their passions, other than their research. This enabled us to introduce each portrait with a sequence in which the laureate is seen in a totally different context. This allows the viewer to get to know more of his personality. Next we created a link with his research and we followed him at work.
