Scientific research if often very technical and does not translate well to the public. Communicating findings to a broad audience can be difficult for scientists, but it is a critical step in the experimental process and increases research impact. Using film or other visual media can be an effective way to share research and tell stories. Increasing the accessibility of science to broad audiences is important if researchers want to influence stewardship.
The goal of working with collaborators and different media in communicating our science is to convey our findings in creative ways. The products from this ongoing work will provide audiovisual tools and other products to the public. We work with various artists and designers, including Pennington Productions, Sea Stoke Magazine, and Gordon Holden.
