Seminar: 'Getting Started with Multimedia Science Communication and Animation'



Multimedia storytelling can be a wonderful way to connect people with research in a way that is engaging and humanizing. This includes animation, illustration, photography, video, podcasts and many other forms of the communication arts. In this seminar, Marley Jarvis, senior outreach and education specialist at the Institute for Learning and Brain Sciences of the University of Washington, will give an introduction to how to approach visual science communication, with a focus on creating fun, mixed-media, animated videos. We will walk through how to think about visual and multimedia storytelling for non-scientific or broad audiences, as well as strategies for when, where and why to add visuals and animations to your science communication. Also, we will talk about some of the specific software and hardware that Marley uses in creating animations.

This event is part of the Water Whys VIP SciComm Seminar Series and is open to the University of Arizona community and beyond. Participants must register for each session separately in order to receive the Zoom link.
