I worked with researchers from the School of Earth and Ocean Sciences at Cardiff University on a climate change outreach project called “Five things everyone should know about ancient oceans”.
Our broad remit was to produce something to appeal to non-specialist audiences. Working closely with a group of enthusiastic post docs, lecturers, and PhD students, we developed scripts focusing on their interests and expertise. We recorded these in Cardiff and I edited them together with a series of images to make a series of narrated slide shows, incorporating music specially composed by Dominic Lash.
My aim was to keep them as short and sweet as possible, and to capture the enthusiasm and energy of the Cardiff researchers.
The videos will be used by Cardiff University on their website and at open days.
