UPDATED! My adventures in green screen sci-comm

Apr 06 2015 Published by under Uncategorized

Thanks to the folks at ACS Reactions, I've gotten the chance to fight ninjas do a little green screen filming.  The first video, Zombie Apocalypse Survival Chemistry: Death Cologne, was based on a guest blog I wrote for Scientopia ('Chemistry for the zombie apocalypse') which I turned into a presentation most recently given at SciPop Talks!

The second video - Inside the Game of Thrones Poison, the Strangler - comes from a recent entry to this blog called 'Chemistry and King Joffrey'.

I even got to pontificate on why I love to blend science and pop culture.

...and talk video games...

Speaking of rocket science, I got to highlight the work of Mary Sherman-Morgan. Back on earth, two other ground-breaking women scientists are highlighted in the video below - Alice Ball and Dr. Rachel Lloyd.

ACS Reactions, with support from CAS, started 'Get To Know A Molecure'. I got to talk about carbon monoxide, rose oxide, and cortisol.

As part of a collaboration between SciPop Talks! and ACS Reactions, I got be an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Another SciPop Talks! and ACS Reactions collaboration saw the collaboration of two loves of mine - science & football!

SciPop Talks! loves video games and we released the following video the same week Fallout 4 was released.

I really enjoy writing and presenting these videos. Fingers crossed I'll get to do more in the future!
