A documentary short by Bioscientist Dr Helen Cooper and Filmmaker Nick Ray Rutter. The Science on Film initiative is run by the Wellcome Trust in partnership with the Documentary Filmmakers Group. It provided a unique and exciting opportunity for film-makers and biomedical scientists to collaborate on an intensive film production and training scheme taught by leading broadcast professionals and scientists. A total of 16 applicants were chosen to participate in a six-day training programme, which included seminars, script development workshops and intensive hands-on training in the documentary production process. The eight film-makers and eight scientists then worked in partnerships to plan, shoot and edit short films inspired by science.
