The Incremental Step Test

Educational documentary for The Open University – one of thirteen video and fourteen audio assets for a module in Sport Studies.

The brief was a factual film that demonstrated how a step test is carried out in controlled conditions by a leading Olympic nutritionist at the elite sports institution Bisham Abbey. We filmed it stage by stage, showing optimum performance until collapse and with no opportunity for a second take. The outcome is an engaging learning film for the student to understand exactly what is involved in the test.
