Tallboy was invited to produce a promotional DVD, which would be used as a learner recruitment tool in the coming year(s). This DVD was to replace any existing paper and would be used as the medium to transfer as much information about their school and their community as possible. The DVD’s would be distributed to individual learners and their parents as well as being available on a website for everyone to see. The learners being targeted were primarily year 4 and 5 learners (aged 8 – 10 years) and their parents.
