Seminar: "Documenting Science: How to Shoot Usable Video of your Research"

Thursday, April 21, 2016 - 9:45am to 11:30am
Foster Auditorium in Pattee Library

The Sustainability Institute will host a seminar from 9:45-11:30 a.m. on April 21 in Foster Auditorium in Pattee Library with Glacial Balance film producer Ethan Steinman. At this seminar, Steinman will discuss inexpensive and effective methods of recording high-quality media in the field.

From the producer:

"Rather than fighting for high budgets or hiring someone to film, I teach them the methods a filmmaker uses to key in on their subject and shoot an array of footage that can be edited after research is complete to complement their research papers and assist in public outreach. I like to focus on using available technology (cellphones, school cameras, etc.) because knowing how to use these tools and how to construct a visual story is what is key. This workshop has no cap on audience size as it is in large part my presentation which includes examples from my own work. At the end I open it up to questions and discussion since every field of research has their own challenges, so I like to work with the researchers to help them see their projects as I would were I going to be filming about them."

The seminar is free and open to all.
