Shoot your own science package – Shooting, editing and presenting a science VT in an afternoon!

After some very accessible, hands-on training on broadcast cameras & sound equipment we’ll discuss how a science news story can be put together in different styles, tones and structures.

Your challenge? To film your own 2 minute news package, complete with pieces to camera, interviews and vox pops. In your group you’ll brainstorm, script and then take to the streets to become director, presenter, interviewer and interviewee. Then we’ll edit the film together, pulling all your footage and additional B roll into a coherent film, before comparing it to a BBC news package covering the same story. How did yours shape up?


Anyone interested in media production or science communication.

[Session requires camera & sound equipment. Ideally this is provided by venue, or it can be hired by Greg at an additional cost]
