Video Guidelines

Video submissions to the Bioethics Showcase should:

  • Have a maximum runtime of 5 minutes
  • Take any form (there are no restrictions regarding form – documentary, narrative, animated, experimental, etc.)

The student submitter is responsible for obtaining permissions to use any copyrighted images; to avoid copyright issues, it is highly recommended that all non-original material used have a creative commons license or be in the public domain.

For Inspiration

To think about possible topics, visit the Sloan Science & Film: Museum of the Moving Image and take a look at the student video shorts or the reviews of films that integrate science.

Students may also benefit from working with staff in the Gelardin New Media Center, 1st Floor of Lauinger Library.  Gelardin has expert staff with practical knowledge of video planning and production.
