SCIFEST PROFILES!

these are a few short videos which we have made to be aired at a schools science festival. we profiled postgraduate science students with the aim of showing that science is exciting and fun! (which it is)

stick around, watch our little videos and tell us what you think!

Jess Sterley – Marine Biologist

by Dan and Matt

Think all science students spend their days in a lab? For Jess Sterley, her lab is the ocean. If you love the sea, and think knowing more about it’s inhabitants and their role in our ecosystem is worth while, watch how Jess Sterley merges these two passions.

 
Talking chemistry, travelling and exciting futures with Nolwazi

by Gugs and Dan girl

In today’s society, many students are blinded by the idea that Science is for boring old men but, in fact, anyone can begin a career in this exciting field! Nolwazi Nombona is a Masters student at Rhodes University currently researching deep into the world of electrochemistry.  With passion, Nolwazi explains how Science is everywhere and in everything and with that, encourages everyone to become involved in the Science world.

For us, as Journalism students who had to complete this assignment, we not only learnt the basics of shooting for TV but also the values of a degree in Science.  Once you enter your faculty at university you often block off the others around you but this task opened our minds to what is out there.

Take a watch, learn a thing or two and let us know what you think.

Real life CSI: Cameron Richards

by Jade and Jola

So you’ve spent hours watching CSI…now take 2 minutes to see a ‘real’ CSI guy who’s just finished studying at Rhodes;  if your stomach is strong enough and you wanna help solve crimes and  you’ve been looking for a science career that will guarantee you a job, Cameron Richards will show you how it’s done. 


 

Charming Chilean!

 by Fatz and Stu   

Ola! What do you get when you mix a Borat-like Chilean with Marine Ecology?

Eliecer Diaz. 

A post-graduate science student whose so cool and thoroughly charming, we just had to make a profile of him. You think science is boring? Let Eliecer convince you otherwise by joining him on a fascinating trip to the beach.  After watching this you’ll certainly be saying “I LIKE!” to science!

The video is only 2 minutes long, so it wont take up much of your time. We hope you enjoy and feel free to leave comments.

 

Hi five!

Pooling with science
by MK and Azwi

    

   

  

 

So you have watched your National Geographic Species and you think you know all there is to know about different species, but what do you really  know about fishes? Are they all related and what does it mean if they  are (or aren’t)? Meet Caswell Mavimbella, a post graduate science student, whose life is as interesting as the research he is doing on fishes.

 

 

 

 

 

The Wright idea

by Fish and Cath 

Meet Imogen Wright. Tall…blonde…and scientific! Imogen is pretty much the coolest person ever: she is definitely not your typically average grey-haired, lab-coated, glasses-wearing nuclear physicist (think Newton, Einstein and other ballies). She is a dynamic young woman who is infectiously passionate about the mysteries of science and how these affect the world around us. She also likes computer games and selling chocolate pie at the local farmer’s market.

your prayers have been answered!

Hey Fatz/Stu,
I just wanted to say I really dug ur vid, well done. U guys did a great job sticking to the brief and aced the target market, and I thought you’re opening sequence worked well. I did think that you guys didn’t focus enough on his science in particular though – specifically a current research project that your sci-guy was maybe working on. I think marine biology is a bit too broad a field to discuss without doing that, and you lost me a little in the piece because of that. I felt like the clip needed to be longer to get into that kind of detail.
In terms of content I found it a bit lacking, and I thought you could’ve added some stuff, like when he says “seaweed could be more interesting than you think”, I really wanted to know why. (I know it’s weird) 🙂
From all the laughs and smiles, it seems like you guys really connected with this guy, and I thought that was great. His demeanour really makes the piece.
Well done hey guys, good luck with your “How to”s. Mish

So I know I’ve seen all of these videos a million times (ok maybe that was a bit of an exaggeration) with all that practising for sci-fest central, but, I don’t know, seeing them on the WWW is so much more impressive. So I had another squizz. Well done guys! Not too bad for our first time eh? When I think back to when Alette first gave us these assignments and how daughting it sounded, I think everyone has done very well.

Jo and Jade I really love the CSI come FBI feel you had to your piece. It just have it a complete different feel and new angle to approaching this story, but still incorporating the main focus of science and, more importantly, the personality of Cameron. This came out more at the end when you focused more on his hobbies etc. Looking more closely at the production side of things, the use of colour and sound effects worked will with the theme, without being too dramatic. Your editing was smooth, keeping a logical flow in the story, and your shots visually stimulating. As mentioned before, your story had a different angle on it making it better for its target audience and eye-catching from the start. There were a few glitches here and there when it came to audio levels and transitions but hey, we’re all new at this and practice can only make you better! Keep up the good work guys – and that goes to the whole thedaybeforefriday team!

I’m not just commenting on Gugs and Dangirl’s video because Dan said such nice things about ours (Thanks Dan :). I honestly felt it was such a clean, professional profile on Nolwazi, which considering it was your first time filming, says so much. Your editing was flawless and I loved the way the audio worked with the profile as a whole. Your little pop-up also added a nice touch that really reaches to the target market of teens. I did feel that you could have expanded more with different shots concerning her spare-time activities so the profile wasn’t just limited to the lab, but you did a really good job of getting her to shine and express her personality, through both the interview and shot composition of her lab work. Well Done!!

Fish and Cath! niiiiice… the intro to your vid is very cool. The fast- paced shots you took around Imogen really created a nice effect. You really did hit the nail on the head when it comes to portraying a sciencey person as an out of the box, fun- filled individual. I liked how you did this by contrasting Imogen with the ballies, was very effective and made your point clear. You also showed her in a many different places, doing different things which showed how multi dimensional she is. I think you captured her personality which is awesome, because it’s such a short piece. Because of the length of the piece, and the amount of different visuals you put in, I thought it was great that you showed the written questions as effects on the screen, this helped keep up the pace up and provided clear links.
I like how you come back to science at the end, and she tells students why they should study it, as without this it may seem a bit random. It’s good that at the end she explains something about time being relative and how bizarre science can be, because this places her scientific interest in context. I do think it may have been cool if you guys had asked her what she planned to do with science though, because as much as this may appeal to people, they always want to know what job opportunities a degree can offer.

Dan and Matt: I enjoyed your piece. The subtitles were often not 100% accurate but the visuals are great and so is the editing. I like that you included footage of the ship she was talking about it, it took the viewer on her adventure. I think her friendly character was captured quite well. Her inquisitive nature comes across at the very beginning and when she is seen leaning over the boat analysing her findings. She shows that scientists are not always confined to their labs; they have other passions which can be incorporated into their studies. I liked the very beginning, where she shows the viewer the stomach; except I didn’t know immediately where the stomach came from. Did it come from the plankton? I also liked the footage of her getting into the boat, it gave the viewer a good sense of where she was and the environment that she enjoys being in. I think some more close ups would have complemented the piece, for example, a close up on her feet while she walks through the water. The audio works well with the visuals, especially when she is talking about the island and the different animals she saw while there. I like the music that was used as well. The footage of the ship looks really good. I also like the ending; it rounds off her personality really well. Well done Matt and Dan.

Fatz and Stu: I really like this piece. Well done guys, it looks great. I don’t think people know enough about marine biology to understand the importance of it. I think you did a really good job with showing people how a marine biologist is able to make a difference in the world, in the real world, not just in his lab. I like that you show him in places other than in his lab because it brings science alive for viewers. The idea of the stereotyped scientist, the scientist who sits in his/her lab all day, is such a problem because it makes science look boring and irrelevant to everyday life. This video shoes that science is very much about what is happening around us, I don’t think enough people realize that and that’s the reason there is a shortage of scientists in South Africa- that and the lack of funding and education. More students and school pupils should be given the confidence to study science. Many are afraid that science is difficult and that’s the reason they don’t want to study it or take it as a school subject. I like that Eliecer says that at first he didn’t think he would enjoy marine biology, it makes the subject seem a bit easier than people think it is. It makes it seem less scary, which is really good.This video is extremely encouraging. Well done guys.

Re: Johnny the Fish and Cath’s profile on Imogen Wright.

1. Content of the story and issues around science.

Really like your piece guys. Especially the beginning part. Liked how you contrasted Imogen with the stereotypes of science. I feel that this video could well have gone on for longer. Which is a good thing… Had some major bandwidth issues watching this. It stuttered throughout for me which made it hard to watch. Not your fault of course. I was literally watching 2
seconds at a time… anyway. Would have maybe been nice to know a little bit more about Imogen and where she wants to go.. Maybe the beginning part profiling all the scientists of days gone by, as much as I like it, could have been shorter. It was only 37 seconds in that we saw Imogen for the first time. So maybe the fancy intro could have been slightly shorter, given that it’s only a 2 minute piece. Again I think your piece deserved a longer time slot. I think that anyone watching this at Scifest would definitely at least consider taking up science thanks to your video.

2. The way a TV story was made.

As for your shots, I loved the fast cuts of Imogen standing infront of the clock tower. That was very well put together, and really differed from the slow pace of the beggining. I also think you did a good job in terms of sequences. You seemed to use the 5 shot rule and it cut together nicely. I enjoyed the shots of her away from her work playing computer games and “chilling around the house”, again breaking the mould of the science stereotype. Another thing I liked was the way that you had titles introducing each part of her life. All in all a well structured, well planned, well filmed and well edited piece. I used the word “well” too many times there.

Good work guys 🙂

Lloyd.

One of the many issues around science in our modern society is the stereotype that surrounds people in the industry. Young people think that to be a scientist you need to be mathematically inclined and bordering on genius levels. A profession with a bad or “seemingly-impossible-to-get-into” reputation has serious implications for the future of that industry as it wont be seen as being that attractive, either that or young people brimming with potential may choose not to try because they are scared by the demands. However programs like CSI which Jo and Jade have mentioned are responsible for providing an alternative view of the profession to the youth and in a way popularising a lesser known profession. I think your story has tackled an important issue and will attract the target audience, your content was excellent, the piece answered all my questions. The science faculty is quite separate from other faculty, what goes on in their laboratories is seldom broadcast to campus, this piece will open many students eyes and provide them with fresh insight, whether it is university students in a different faculty or department or school students who are considering their future careers. Well done for breaking the stereotype and making the subject so interesting! Rock on with the science, after all if you want to change the world, science is a good place to start.

Dan, Gugs, great piece! Your subtitles were great and easy to read, the pace was just right. The way you let Nolwazi introduce herself was great, it made it feel as though she was leading you into the story and she kept that going throughout the piece. Well handled zoom throughout and your usage of the fast-forward effect worked really well in the beginning however I found your corridor shot tedious and false, especially after such an honest and face to face introduction. It could have been useful for some viewers to have Nolwazi’s name feature for longer so that they could remember it. For the most part your cuts were clean, however I felt there was a severe lack of different shots, as well as a few too many static shots, which made the piece feel a bit bland. More close ups, medium shots and wide shots would have been great to really get a sense of Nolwazi’s environment. Good story structure. The info bubble in the top right hand corner with the meaning of carcinogenic was useful. I found your use of picture and voice over to be confusing especially when she had been talking to the camera and then started laughing but the voice over continued in the same breath. On the whole well done.

I love the look of your blog. Your design is clean but funky, it represents a lot of your personalities, which is very important. Your usage of pictures with stories is awesome especially with the way that if the title doesn’t managed to attract the readers attention the picture most certainly will. Your blog is easy to navigate and very eye-pleasing. Really well done!

To Jola & Jade:
It is amazing what one can do in the field of science. You know we walk around, live our normal lives and we never actually take note of things that are taking place around us. I was fascinated at Cameron Richards story, that such a young guy takes pride into helping other people, not only other people other communities, I mean his work stretches as far as King Williams Town. That means that this guy actually gives up a lot of his time because of the passion he has for science.
I actually did not know that science had anything to do with dead bodies and horses but like Cameron said in the field of forensic you learn something new everyday and he is no exception to that.
It is usually said that those who do the sciences are nerds and geeks but from watching the video it is clear that Cameron has his life outside the lab. One thing that many misinterpret is the fact that there is a lot that one can do in the field of science, just depends on where your passion lies.
Think we need more of these videos to educate our young South Africans.

MK & Azwi:
I think that the way that this TV story was made is very good. The different use of shots and back rounds made it appeal to the eye. I like the idea that even though the story was about a scientist and basically what he does as a scientist, the way that the story started was away from that norm of science.
The shot of Caswell Mavimbelah playing pool were good. I was impressed by the way he just linked the whole game of pool to science, it just went to show just how much this man was passionate about science.
I thought that the use of Caswell’s mother tongue throughout the story was good and in this case viewers can appreciate the subtitles that are provided. However, I noticed that the composition of shots at some points was a bit shaky… tripod? You do not want to mess up a good shot.
Also, be careful with the amount of headspace you leave out when the camera is just on the interviewee. You leave too much of it and this disturbs the picture frame. Avoide the zoom in, zoom out idea, rather pause and repeat the shot.
It was a good TV story, some good visuals and clear shots. I especially liked the fish tank.

Gugu and Dan I liked your piece.

Though it worked well without narration. Which is pretty hard to do. It all flowed nicely. I found your intro a bit too long and it didn’t sell Nolwazi to me. Had I known what electroscience was, I wouldn’t have watched it. You could have made said something about her travelling in your intro to make her interesting.

I liked your usage of the explanatory bubble because after she used that word I was like cancera-what? So that was was good in assisting me to understand her work. The cutaways are a bit arbitrary and not correlating to her explanation.

The quality of the video id very good and the sound is really clear which is hard to capture in a lab (how’d you do it with all those machines?). I liked the part where she laughs and slow motion that brings her personality across, making her seem like a warm person. I like the attention to little details, her name stuck to her workstation and the usage of close-ups. Overall, a job well-done.

Gugu and Dan.
Guys you did a good a very job on your video. Your story flows nicely from the beginning to the end. Your story has the “so what?” factor on it.You managed to put everything together within just 2 minutes. What drew my attention to your story is that it is about a woman who has made it this far in the science field. It is interesting to see that there are women- especially blacks- who are embacking on Science. I think this will set an example to other women in South Africa.
I just wish that the education department can invest more on Science by putting resources to those schools that are less privilaged. Most high schools in rural areas do not have computers, and children learn how to use a computer when they come to tertiary. Others do Mathematics and Physical Science on standard grade. This puts them at a disadvantage as a result they take one extra doing the so called bridging courses.
If we can have more students embarking on Science our country will no longer need to seek help(such as employing forein doctors ) from other countries. Our contry will be in a much better situation economically as well because unemployment rate will drop.

Fatz and Stu I like your story, it is very well structured. What I like the most is your introduction. At the beginning its begins like a movie. And definitely it is going to appeal very well to the target audience. The character of subject was very interesting, because you allowed him to speak with his accent. And your subject is doing something which is different and I think it’s a career which has few people and many learners will be encouraged to go for it.
Your profile also educates or an insights young pupil, what marine ecology is all about. The story shows that scientist’s lives do not end inside the labs, but they have lot of fun. Like you subject is working on the sea which is something would be appreciated by many young people. It gave me a sense of how interesting to work as marine ecologist.
I get to know that sea is full of life because there are many animals live within the sea. It shows some happiness and enthusiasms of how scientists enjoy work on their research. For me I was convinced to study science and wish could go back to high school days.
However, the problem that South Africa has when it comes into science is the issue of self-confidence. For example many students when they think of science they think of something for certain individual that were born “super-clever”. But Eliecer Diaz has proved that anyone can be marine ecologist.
In South Africa I think we are still far behind in terms of science. One may argue that it is because of the past. Many black students still far behind when comes to science field which I believe that our government has to consider this issue very serious and with more attention. He needs to build more laboratories in the township and in rural areas’ schools, so that students can have competence requirements to enter university levels to study science. More funds for disadvantage students must be put in to place, because many students finished grade twelve, but at the end their grade twelve becomes valueless because they cannot afford education.

Guys again your profile was good TV story. It is eye catching. The way you introduce the character was very good. I think guys you worked very hard to make the whole story to be coherent from introduction to, body and conclusion, since you did not used any of your voice over. It is just a subject. Even with the absence of narration’s voice the story does make sense and entertaining as well. And you manage to make it flow from the beginning to an end.

You have nice shot guys. And I like the way they have been put together. The emotions on the shots just added value to be more interesting. I like the shot of Elieceri when he was walking in the water. JA, guys your shots are good, that shows to me that you thought carefully about them before you shoot and they tell a story.

Another thing is that I like to your story in the way that your subject is the one who introduce the action. He is like an actor or an anchor that grabs my attention because he explains everything in an entertaining way.
Good work guys, I do not have many words to say. Good work

I like your piece so much that it is hard to write a comment, but I’ll try!
CONTENT AND RELEVANCE:
I really liked your piece. As for breaking stereotypes, well done! It’s very nice to see a scientist who spends most of her time outdoors and not in a lab-coat or behind books.
I was however a bit confused in the beginning because she was only introduced properly later in the piece and the part with the stomach was a bit random. Overall, your insert seems very professional and formal. It is important for an assignment like this one to stick to an informal tone mainly because our target audience is so young. I am by all means not saying your piece is boring! I just think that with all the footage you have, you should have made it a bit more fun.
Keeping the target audience and relevance of the piece in mind, perhaps you should’ve shown a bit more about her personal life and hobbies. Yes, she loves what she does, but surely she has time for things other than science?
I find the bit about her on the SA Alghus absolutely great! It shows the endless possibilities of science and the chances scientists have to go on exciting expeditions. I am sure that any high-school student will be inspired by this video!
EDITING:
I mentioned before that it was a bit strange that she wasn’t introduced from the start. The title/header of the piece only pops up later, which seemed a bit odd.
I like the way your shots fade. I am not exactly sure why you choose to go from a close up of her holding the stomach to a mid-shot of the interview and then back to the close up of the stomack again. I found that it broke continuity a little. I’m also not too sure whether the over-the-shoulder shot of her driving the car worked because it was very bumpy and I would have perhaps chosen to leave it out. There is also a medium close-up of her standing in front of a rock-face. This shot to me seemed a bit strange as well, because you zoom in and out as she is speaking. I understand that you probably needed it for content purposes. The rhythm of your shots and cut-aways slow down toward the end, but it doesn’t upset the continuity of the shots.
Other than the few shots I’ve mentioned, I am very impressed. I am astounded at your quality of sound, I know it is not easy to get good sound with the mikes, especially on a windy day at the beach! You have such a wide variety of shots which makes your piece’s visuals very exciting! All your hard work paid off.

Stu and fatz:

Content and issues around science

I think that your profile on Elicier is really well structured and well put togehter. It was refreshing to see the personality of the person you spoke to come out so well and so clearly through the work that you produced. I think this is one of the strongest factors around your profile as a whole.This could have only come through focusing oon getting to know your subject well so that he could feel confident enough to be so easy-going and free in front of the camera. That was good work on your part guys!! I think that you worked at showing the many facets of his personality as well, this is particularly highlighted through the different environments that you show him in. Elicier then becomes a well rounded individual rather than a flat 2 dimensional character. Letting him speak fro himself in order to explain why he does what he does also made your piece that much stronger in terms of the content and you did a good job at integrating what he says with the visuals that you had. I think that the scientist you chose was good at breaking some of the sterotypes around scientists and what sort of people they are suppoused to be like. He is a vibrant likeable character and the fact that he comes from Chile and he’s studying in South Africa also helps in showing that science is science everywhere.It is not boxed up and different just because it’s in a different country. I think that the piece again shows that science is something we do live with day to day and the beauty of science comes in the simplest things that nature provides. This was beautifully captured through your visuals on the beach and the animals he showed you. I love the nostalgic effect the piece has on the viewer as you enter the beach world with him and he shows you his world in the world.

Editing

I think that your shots were great and your editing was really on point. The visuals at the beginning of Elicier on the bike were really great. Fast tracking him going into the lab was aslo a great idea and your choice of music at the beginning worked well at the beginning. I Love how you used the day in the life of type of fromat fro the story I think it worked well. It would have been great if we could have seen some more close ups on Elicier’s face as he was showing the animals and plant life to you at the beach just to see his reaction and make the experience of being at the beach more personal . Ohterwise I think the editing was great. Well done , brilliant work.
