A major challenge for us scientists, is to communicate complex concepts and detailed content in ways that are appropriate for the wide audience. Films are powerful tools of scientific communication, but the technical skills for filming and editing, as well as developing a strong narrative, lie outside our training as academic scientists. This course taught students about camera, audio, lighting equipment, and how to use film editing software, together with how to write, design and carry out the basics of making a documentary. This practice-focused course included filming two short films (2 small groups).

Have a look at the making-of video.

This event was offered exclusively for students of the Environmental Studies Certificate Program
