Present your research in an engaging way via video and win £200!
2014 is an amazing year for engagement opportunities in the University, from the fantastic home-grown Arts & Science Festival to the national British Science Festival being held on campus, and we want to celebrate and showcase the best of our research in the most creative and exciting ways possible.
The Public Engagement Working Group (PEWG) will be offering £200 prizes for the best 4-minutes videos based on Birmingham research aimed at a general audience. We welcome creative videos from senior staff as well as post-graduate and post-doctoral researchers, whether individually or representing wider groups. The video can either be in the form of a presentation, interview, exercise, activity, role-play, cartoon or in any way that you feel conveys your research most effectively. Visit the competition page for more information!
The deadline is Wednesday the 30th of May 2014 at 12 noon.
I found this a very useful resource for making films with beginners: http://scicast.org.uk/resources/film-school/ as the target was working with school kids. However, there is a great pdf handbook available at the bottom of the page full of ideas and tips….http://scicast.org.uk/files/SciCast_Producers_Handbook_2008.pdf
