A cinema movie camera. Science Communication IV: (YouTube) Videos

A science video is an entertaining form of science communication!
Ever wanted to try out Video for yourself as a form to communicate your research to a boader audience? This is your chance to get professional help from experienced Video creators!
A video will give you the opportunity to paint pictures and explain with joy, away from the factual scientific talks and articles you are used to.
In this workshop, everyone will create their own video and can upload it on YouTube and Science Chatter Hamburg.

Is this for me?

This workshop is addressed to researchers who are curious about engaging with the public in an exciting format combining entertainment and education.
No previous knowledge is required. You will learn all the basics of video outlining, recording and editing and be able to create your video during the workshop. Finally, there will be the opportunity to post your video on YouTube and Science Chatter Hamburg.
