Filmmaking for scientists
Scientists can benefit from the inspirational, educational, and motivational power of films to communicate their knowledge and expertise to both peer scientists and the general public.
Unfortunately, the technical skills for filming and editing, as well as developing a strong narrative, lie outside our training as academic scientists. In this workshop, participants will learn 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 workshop will include filming short documentary films.
Camera and lighting (using different professional cameras but also smartphones)
Screenwriting and storyboard (using examples from fiction and documentary films)
Film editing (using Premiere Pro CC and CapCut)
Filming short documentary films
At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to prepare their own films, including script & storyboard, camera & lighting and editing.
Pedagogical methods, logistical aspects
The whole workshop will be working together to prepare short films, and the participants will learn all about filmmaking while they prepare these short films. Specialist equipment (including professional cameras, lighting materials, computers and software) will be supplied by the trainer.
