The Marathon Of All Swiss Universities And Research Centres

ORGANISERS & SPONSORS

University of Basel, University of Zurich, ETH Zurich, University of Bern, EAWAG, WSL, Life Science Zurich

DESCRIPTION

In the filmmaking marathon, we train researchers in tools used in dramatic storytelling and filmmaking to communicate their research, thereby making their science more readily accessible for a broader audience. Course participants learn the basics of visual storytelling and filmmaking and in working in groups supervised by professional filmmakers will produce short films during three intensive course days. The produced films will be screened as premieres at the 6th Global Science Film Festival (www.sciencefilm.ch), with a special award for the best film.

Day 1: Pitching of science stories, and small groups (scientists and artists) making

            Each group (Scientist and filmmakers) prepare their story, script and storyboard, and present them to the other participants in the marathon
