Event Details

Eye-catching multimedia

Great visuals are essential for standing out – eye-catching images make webpages and presentations zing, and video content is more and more necessary.

In this workshop we’ll cover the basics of creating strong stills and video footage. How to get the lighting right, set up a classy composition and focus the eye in the right place.

Bring a camera – a smartphone will do – as we will have lots of practical exercises to try out your newly-learned skills, taking portraits, action shots and set ups. We’ll finish with some introductory tips on editing video.

Remember to charge your battery and have plenty of memory space.

We’ll cover:

* How to think visually and tell a story

* Lighting and sound basics

* Strong composition – relationship between the subject and the background

* Simple video tips to achieve a classy result

* Use of angles, voice over, cut away and text

* Principles of video editing.

Who is it for?

Anyone who wants more confidence creating images to illustrate their research.

The Presenter Dr Phil Dooley, freelance science writer, presenter and videomaker

From childhood dreams of being an astronomer, Dr Phil Dooley progressed to a PhD in laser physics. After a stint as an IT trainer, he returned to science as a communicator, where he could talk about the fun stuff without the heavy-duty equations.

In his career he has taken bored teenage school kids on physics excursions at University of Sydney; created digital content for the international fusion research organisation, JET; been schooled by a battle-hardened Reuters hack in the ANU media office and written for prominent science publishers Nature and Cosmos Magazine.

He regularly MCs Science in the Pub events, and has performed solo in shows and festivals from Adelaide to London, blending music, stand up comedy, fairytales and live science demos. He runs a YouTube channel, Phil Up On Science.

Dr Phil is a qualified professional trainer, with a Certificate IV in Workplace training and assessment, and is National Vice-President of Australian Science Communicators.
