Communicating Science through Video

Thursday, March 5
8:30am-12:00pm
 
 Scientists and managers alike often need to discuss complicated scientific findings in a clear, concise manner with members of the public. Videos are a tool that can aid in the effective delivery of complex concepts while engaging an audience with media-rich information. Have you wanted to use video to convey a science message but were reluctant because video making seemed difficult, time-consuming, and expensive? If so, then this workshop might be for you! Join JoAnn Mellish and Lauren Bell to learn how to deliver a compelling message using low-cost science videography. They teach time-saving tips and tricks that have developed through their own quests to balance quality communications with a busy professional schedule. 
 
This workshop is designed to demystify the video-making process and introduce participants to science videography using readily available and inexpensive technology. Using only their own iPhone (or a provided GoPro) participants will learn how to shoot and edit a 2-minute video about their science. Beyond the technical, the workshop will also teach the skills of video story-telling.
 
This workshop was originally developed and adapted from the 2013 and 2014 Alaska Marine Science Symposium’s Communicating Science workshops. Laptops with GoPro Studio encouraged for video-editing, but not necessary.
