With the rise of social media and visual culture, researchers are uniquely positioned to use video to make their research accessible and available. But with a deluge of content on the internet, a cohesive approach—a strong concept, technical competence, targeted outreach—is increasingly important. Focusing on the basics of video production, this talk explores effective strategies for the conception, production, and dissemination of research-based video.
