Scripts for the Science Museum, Media Museum and Locomotion
I’ve worked with the Science Museum Group (SMG) learning team over the last few years developing and scripting short gallery introduction films with creative consultancy Radley Yeldar. For each film I looked for stories that would help to show that science is something in which everyone has a stake, an approach consistent with the SMG’s commitment to building science capital.
The latest film, released in spring 2023, is for the new interactive Technicians Gallery, which explores the skills young people can put to work in careers as technicians, everywhere from a blockbuster film set to a pharmaceutical lab.
Prior to that was a film introducing the Science Museum’s huge new project Medicine: The Wellcome Galleries, in 2020, and another showcasing the Maths Gallery in 2017.
Here are other films for the Science Museum and its sister museums in Bradford and Shildon.
The Science Museum’s learning team also commissioned me to help them script a hand-drawn animation exploring how the science capital approach can help transform science centres and museums.
