I recently wrote about the excellent Scientific Filmmaking workshop I took at Bodega Bay last month, and I shared a few of the exercises I had done during the workshop. Well, after submitting a big grant last week, I had time to sit down and put a few finishing touches on the final “video blog” project for the course. I worked with Kelvin Gorospe and Annie Schmidt on this short piece, which profiles Kristin Aquilino, a Ph.D. candidate in the Population Biology Graduate Group at UC Davis. Kristin studies community ecology in the rocky intertidal zone at Bodega Marine Lab, and she was very patient with Kelvin, Annie and me as we bumbled our way through our first filmmaking attempt! Here is the result of our efforts; I hope you enjoy it!
