#SciFund is at its core about community: a community of scientists engaging the public about science. To show the community off, I want to put together a group video featuring every scientist who is part of #SciFund (in any way). To do this though, I need your help (it should only take about 5-10 minutes of your time).
I want you to look into your closest webcam and record video of you reading the following text (or something close to it):
My name is (state your name) and I am SciFund! I’m from (state your country). I am a (state kind of scientist you are) and my research is cool/important (or whatever other adjective works for you) because (whatever the reason or reasons).
Your whole video probably won’t be more than 45 seconds. I am going to take all of your videos and edit them together into a group video, that shows the power of the #SciFund community! To help with that, it would be wonderful if you could be somewhat high energy in your video. If you are totally new to video production, we have a tutorial out there (check out the instructions under option 1).
Once you have shot the video, please save it either as a .mov file (quicktime format) or in mpeg-4 format and e-mail it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you could send me the video by next Wednesday (April 11), I would be very grateful.
