Faculti is a media platform that hosts cutting-edge information films from across a diverse range of fields and institutions.
Faculti currently have offices in the UK and Boston, USA
Faculti is impartial, inclusive and independent. We are committed to representing all researchers from across all institutions on one platform. Hosting the most distinguished Professors to newly qualified PhD students, Faculti allows for an open and free platform to access the latest research information.
Our short films distill the crucial aspects of a piece of academic or professional research clearly and quickly. Our in-depth programming informs and entertains should viewers wish to dive deeper into a topic.
Inspired by the confirmation of the Higgs Boson particle in March 2013, Faculti contacted Professor John Ellis, the Clerk Maxwell Professor of Theoretical Physics at King’s College London, about making a short film of the groundbreaking news. The Higgs discovery has been called monumental because it confirms the existence of the Higgs field, pivotal to the Standard Model of particle physics.
Professor Ellis was able to communicate this information in under three minutes, supporting the statement of another pivotal figure in research science, that of Albert Einstein who said “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.”
Since then, the enthusiasm for the platform has grown and it now encompasses films from across a diverse number of fields and disciplines from Art History to Paleontology, Medicine to Finance and much more.
Phi represents the Golden Ratio. Some of the greatest minds of all ages have dedicated countless hours to its properties. The Golden Ratio has inspired thinkers from across many disciplines such as art, music, mathematics, physics, architecture and engineering. We believe Phi symbolises the pursuit of the knowledge across all the disciplines.
After scheduling an interview time with our team of digital producers, Faculti video journalists will arrive at a an agreed location and undertake the short Faculti interview. This service is free. At the end of the interview the researcher and VJ will be able to assess the film footage together. The film then goes back to the editing suite for post production and once edited goes live on the Faculti website thereafter. Researchers and host institutions are able to host/embed the film on their sites using the FREE Researcher/Institution Licence. Further dissemination of the research interview is available to external news publishers/organisations looking to also use all / or part of the film in editorial via our Syndication Licence.
