Communicating science through short films
Exposure Science Film Hackathon 2016
Exposure Science Film Hackathon
Communicating Science through short films
Science can appear inaccessible and complex to non-scientists and art can seem unachievable and daunting to scientists. This 3 day course aims to bring together scientists and artists to create films that communicate complex concepts in science.
In groups of 4, participants will:
> find a scientific concept
> decide how they want to communicate this concept
> produce a short film aimed at a non-scientist audience
The short films are created with the aim of communicating fascinating scientific concepts and engaging members of the public with science. On the last evening of the event the films will be presented to a panel of judges who will award a prize to the film that best fulfills the aims of the hackathon. There will also be a free public showing of the films.
