For two years, I served as The College of William and Mary’s first Filmmaker in Residence. Visual communication is a powerful tool and an increasingly essential skill for all students, especially students of science. Clear communication leads to an informed public, which drives public policy and the formation of grass roots initiatives. It’s of vital importance to the advancement of our society that the knowledge of our leading science experts is being communicated accurately, efficiently, and often. An important objective of the position was to familiarize future scientists with visual communication and media literacy.
Here are some projects from my time at our nation’s second oldest university.
