The five films created during the inaugural LabCut workshop are now available to be viewed on the official LabCut YouTube channel and will be screened during the British Science Festival in September. Three of the films have also been shortlisted in the Bristol Science Film Festival 2019.
Funded by the Wellcome Trust and Warwick Quantitative Biomedicine Programme (WQBP), LabCut is a science film workshop run by SynBio CDT PhD students Cansu Kuey, Charlotte Gruender and Patrick Capel.
First of the workshops was held in University of Warwick between 13-15 June, 2019. Within three days participants from various different backgrounds and expertise met each other; formed their teams and stories they wanted to tell; shot the footage and roughly edited the films. The workshop also provided participants training on film analysis (Matt Denny, Teaching Fellow in the Department of Film and Television Studies, UoW) and public engagement of science (Corinne Hanlon, Research and Outreach Manager, WISB, UoW).
