The Science Communication program proudly presents our students' final projects in Mass Media as presented at the annual 2016 Eagle Awards gala on March 30, 2016.
The students, each paired with a Laurentian University Biology graduate student, were tasked with producing a film that represented the research of their research partner. From research and writing, to shooting and editing, the teams produced everything from touching narratives, and fascinating documentary shorts to comedic parodies of popular reality TV dating games. A huge congratulations to all of the students on their first science film productions!
In a second set of video projects titled 'Behind the Science,' Biology graduate students were challenged to be the face and voice of their research on camera, while their Science Communication counterparts introduced the stories and led the interview behind the scenes.

This year, we worked with Biology graduate students at the Vale Living with Lakes Centre to pioneer a new branch of science communication at Laurentian University. These videos were entirely produced, from concept to screen, by the research students themselves to tell their own unique research stories.
Armed with a mobile filmmaking kit including iPads, tripods, mobile lenses, lavalier and shotgun microphones, and using a variety of creative animation styles, the students took part in filmmaking and communication workshops to produce the following short films.
These young researchers presented their films at the annual Eagle Awards gala on March 30, 2016 in front of a packed house at the Vale Living with Lakes Centre.
A huge congratulations to these students for taking part in this exciting new project. Don't forget to like, share and comment!
