We offer immersion workshops (running 3, 7, 12, and 21-days) to teach participants to communicate scientific findings, natural history information, or conservation messages by creating compelling, professional-quality videos.

Topics include story selection, writing, camera technique, voiceovers, video and audio production, basic video and audio editing, project output, and distribution.

These technical elements underpin the main focus of the workshops: effective storytelling through video. The “hands-on” approach will be emphasized, and participants will put concepts introduced in lecture into daily practice.

Participants will also critique existing documentaries, and by the end of the workshop, students have the option to produce a short film on a topic of their choosing.

Join us for an upcoming ScienceFilm workshop (Check the list to the right to find the nearest location to you). If you would like to discuss the possibility of bringing a ScienceFilm workshop to you, please contact us! We are totally portable.
