Event description

Description

Science communication is an increasingly required skill - the ability to be able to condense your research into a simple idea that can be communicated to the public.

If a picture is worth 1000 words, then at 25 pictures per second, video is a priceless tool for communicating in the booming online world. The explosion in digital media has brought a seemingly endless demand for science news in a visual format. No longer just the domain of television, online media uses video to grab attention and help explain complex ideas and to share stories through social media channels. Journal publishers are also increasingly asking for video abstracts to accompany research papers.

What kind of visual material are the media looking for and how can you use this knowledge to communicate your research to the public? How do I actually shoot video?

Join this training workshop to get the low down on video.

Topics will include:

  • Why do we need to bother with video?
  • How do I produce video the media will use?
  • How to distil an idea and find a visual way to represent it
  • Knowing your audience – different visual strokes for different folks
  • How to use your smart phone to shoot video

To make the best use of the workshop you will need to download the following apps:
iOS (iphone): Filmic Pro ($22.99) - https://itunes.apple.com/au/app/filmic-pro/id436577167?mt=8
