Session Information
Presentation Title: 
Bringing research to the general public through narrative visualization
Description: 
Rich media (including video, 3D animation and interactive media) can be used to communicate complex scientific ideas. Key to successful communication is understanding the target audience. Who are they? What do they know? Why should they care? The answer to those questions may be significantly different for researchers than for the general public. This video demonstration will feature visualization work from Oregon State University. The video projects include live action footage, 3D modeling and animation, all designed to communicate scientific research to the lay audience. Underlying the visuals is a strong narrative that helps viewers understand what the research contributes to society and to their own lives.
