We’ve decided to apply for the WeWork Creator Awards, which could get us $72k for Biomakespace. It’s an online application and 90 s video (not a 90’s video, although that could also be fun and we have enough retro lab equipment to dial it back even further).
A draft of the application will follow from me and a draft of the script from @abigailwood for comment. The deadline is Thu 24 Aug.
@tonyn has kindly offered to make himself available tomorrow (Sat 19 Aug) to film and take photos to put together. There will also be an opportunity for shooting on Sunday in the late afternoon. Tony is Chief Cameraman but would like someone to control the clapperboard so we can make sure the audio and video sync up.
We’re looking for volunteers, if anyone is around Sat/Sun and wouldn’t mind:
a) providing something interesting to shoot (so far we have people casting gels, finding samples for the microscope, locating equipment and generally thinking of visually interesting lab things)
b) having a picture of themselves taken with a sign to show who they are and what they’re interested in.
c) generally offering support for the shoot or post-production!
Thanks and we’ll obviously share the finished result once we’re done!
