Science Filmmaking Marathon 6th edition

Dates 15 - 17 September, whole days
Content

In the filmmaking marathon, we train researchers in tools used in dramatic storytelling and filmmaking to communicate their research, thereby making their science more readily accessible for a broader audience. Course participants learn the basics of visual storytelling and filmmaking. Working in groups supervised by professional filmmakers they will produce short films during three intensive course days. The produced films will be screened as
premieres at the 4th Global Science Film Festival, with a special award for the best film.

Program
Day 1
• Pitching of science stories in groups (scientists and artists)
• Each group prepares their story, script and storyboard, and presents them to the other participants in the marathon

Day 2
Filming (participants are free to decide where and when to film)

Day 3
