Exposure science film hackathon 2016
Our first ever Exposure Hackathon was a huge success. The 9 films that the event produced were universally loved.
~~ Thank you to everyone involved in the 2016 Exposure Science Film Hackathon~~
At Cinema Oblo the judges decided to award best film to two films. These films were extremely close in the judges scoring and both fulfilled the aims of the event perfectly.
Carbon Capture Storage by Cut It Out
Quorum Sensing by The Self Organized
The public voted and almost unbelievably the result was again a tie. Once again The Self Organized won, but this time with team Ka.os.

2016 Organising committee
Galyna Pidpruzhnykova: dynamic, hyper-social and open-minded character, I love to discover new places and meet other like-minded and active people. I enjoy organizing social as well as scientific events, travelling, and being in the center of action – from the laboratory to the dance floor. I care about improving career education for scientists and therefore organise networking activities, workshops and courses bridging the gap between academia and non-academic job opportunities. Being a part of the team of EXPOSURE creators, I discovered how exciting science communication is and that miracles can be achieved if you put the right people in a stimulating environment. I hope our project will keep growing and attracting creative minds from all over Europe and even beyond. :)
Robbie I'Anson Price: Robbie is currently completing his PhD on communication in bees at the University of Lausanne. Having previously received bachelor and master degrees from the University of Manchester and Imperial College London, respectively. Robbie is passionate about innovating new and enjoyable ways to communicate science. Currently his artistic focus is aimed at making short films communicating science.
Papilloud Aurelie: I am a final year PhD student in the Laboratory of Behavioral Genetics at EPFL under the supervision of Prof. Carmen Sandi. My thesis project aims at investigating the role of stress hormones in the modulation of behavioral deficits induced by adverse experiences early in life. I joined BSNL in 2015, as event manager and, passionate by science communication and public outreach, took part of the organisation of Exposure, 2016, where I met fascinating people and learned a lot about film making.
Adria Le Boeuf: Adria is a multi-disciplinary scientist and a specialist in creating new media about scientific research. In her scientific life as a researcher at the University of Lausanne, she is managing and executing a project on chemical crowdsourcing of long-term decisions in ant colonies through trophallaxis. Adria is the founder of The Catalyst (www.thecatalyst.ch), a cross-disciplinary theater group for scientists working to improve communication skills and to create new science-driven media (most recently, bluebutterflyplay.ch).
Lamontanara Allan Joaquim: Allan is originally from Lyon, France. After coming to Lausanne in 2012 for his PhD in cancer biochemistry he put effort into building the bridge between academic workers and the industries in Life Sciences by helping in several career events while at BSNL. He is particularly interested in the field of personalised medicine and its uses in cancer. Thriving in teams, he wants to dedicate time to improve scientific communication between the public and scientific organisations. Exposure 2016 was an amazing opportunity for him to devote his energy and enthusiasm with a team of inspiring people toward this goal. Always ready for new challenges he is an enthusiastic fellow traveller ready to discover new cultures and people with whom he can share knowledge.
Samuel P. Muscinelli: Always divided between science and arts, I am a theoretical physicist by background and a trained musical composer. While I am finishing my PhD in computational neuroscience, I carry on my interest in arts by playing the trumpet in the student chamber orchestra, for which I also write arrangements, and by participating in the making of short movies.
