Nice video about ‘jellyfish’

Many biologists are interested in introducing and explaining the wealth of biodiversity across ecosystems. Here is a nice science video about the diversity of animals encompassed in the group we know as ‘jellyfish’.

This video shows effective use of titling, animations, and narration. This video falls a little bit short on the story side of things (We are always stressing the importance of storytelling in our ScienceFilm workshops), but it provides a nice overview of the group. Do you think this needs more story?

Created by Steven Haddock of the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute.

Vancouver Festival of Ocean Films

Hey folks,

are you interested in, or have you made a film about, the ocean? The Vancouver Festival of Ocean Films is accepting submissions until June 1st.

At VFOF, their goal is to inspire and stimulate people to explore their relationship with the ocean by bringing together local and international filmmakers and presenters in a multimedia event and juried film competition.

You can even win a trip to Antarctica by entering your film. Good luck!

Awesome daily GoPro giveaway

It is no secret that we are big fans of GoPro cameras. They are super versatile and output great quality footage. I watched an interview with the founder/CEO of GoPro, and learned that they do a daily giveaway of ‘everything that they make’. Every day! Click here to enter

ScienceFilm Forum is live!

We have created the ScienceFilm forum, a place for everyone interested in science film making to discuss gear and techniques, make announcements, and connect with others who share the same interest. There is also workshop-specific forums for participants to connect before the workshop, and stay in touch after the workshop. We hope it will be a useful addition to the site,
