ScioDC #14: Videos and #SciComm, Ep. 2: Cutting Through The Noise

The Storify of this event is now available!

Online video is experiencing explosive growth, and Mark Zuckerberg recently predicted that “the vast majority of the content that people consume online will be video” within a few years. Video has become a powerful tool for science communication, and YouTube channels like AsapSCIENCE and Vsauce are reaching millions of viewers with entertaining, educational videos about science. Everybody from teachers to TV networks are trying to launch their own successful online video series. But with more than 400 hours of video uploaded to YouTube every minute, how do you create science videos that can cut through the noise?

To find out, come to the next ScienceOnlineDC event on Wednesday, March 30, from 5:30-7:30 PM. For this session, we’ve assembled a panel of creators that have reached millions of viewers with compelling, sharable videos about science. The panelists will share recent work, as well as lessons they’ve learned making online video content over the years. The panelists include:

  • Adam Cole, Producer/Creator of Skunk Bear – NPR
  • Adam Dylewski, Executive Producer of Reactions – American Chemical Society
  • Joss Fong, Senior Editorial Producer – Vox
  • Lauren Saks, Programming Director – PBS Digital
