Are you interested in 'Public Engagement' or using video to publicise your research? If so, then this workshop is for you.

This first session begins with a review of good and bad examples of video, followed by a series of demonstrations:

  • Demonstration of standard equipment for recording
  • The principals of preparing and presenting AV material
  • How to set-up, frame and record AV material and avoiding pitfalls
  • How to script and storyboard to minimise editing

The session is interactive and participatory discussion is encouraged.

Dr Janet Sumner is a qualified geologist and vulcanologist, a broadcast executive and lecturer with The Open University.
