Join me LIVE in a conversation about what YOU want to see in a science video

Are you learning when you watch a science video online or are you on autopilot, waiting to be entertained and hope to absorb information passively?

What do you want in a science themed video? Do you want a lot of animation and fancy CGI, a charming host, real life activities you can do yourself, to see others doing science? Join others who have opinions, too.

If you have a Google + account (which you can easily get with a gmail address. Learn more. ), you can speak with me on a Google + hangout where I will be live online along with others who are interested in this topic.

Join Fraser Cain, publisher of Universe TodayPamela Gay, an astronomer and podcaster, and me tomorrow evening Monday, March 26th at 8pm CDT for a hangout hosted by Jerry Nguyen and Liz Neeley of SciLingual to discuss how we can take science video production and viewing to the next level. If you can't make it, it will be made available on youtube for viewing at a later time.

For those less familiar with my work, here's why I'm one of the guests: 

I produce videos myself. Most lately are popular science book recommendations. I do this a service to literacy in general as well as to science literacy. This is my latest book recommendation:

I also create demonstration videos, and while I haven't made a new one in about a year, I have spent this time rethinking how to present them and looking to up my production values, hopefully with some assistance.

For those not familiar with my amateur work, I've done several videos using science to destroy gummy bears (and gummy bears to explain science), using cookies to explain the different blood cells and to share scientific concepts we see in make-up products. I want people to understand how scientists think and do their work. I've learned a lot about what NOT to do in video work, but also a lot about what makes a video successful.  Here is a combination of many of my videos with a chemistry theme:

I've hosted videos that are shown internally in some of the largest scientific companies in the world. I also do voiceover work for textbook animations and look forward to expanding on this! My dream is to narrate some of the very books I review! 

I blog with Scientific American at PsiVid:Science on the Cyberscreen which examines science in video, TV and film.science in video, TV and film.

I'm not done producing videos yet. My future plans include a Gummy Bear destruction mash-up video, and more science IN cosmetics videos where I collaborate with scientists, communicators and make-up artists to give you the best information possible. In the works are videos about weak acids and bases (like the famous baking soda and vinegar volcano) in cosmetics, how the hot field of genomics is hoping to improve skin care and how the physics of optics combined with materials science makes your skin look flawless!

Think of videos you see online. What are some of your favorites?

Those by NASA always seem to please. 

Do you like Youtube's new SciShow  or Crash Course? 

Do you watch clips from TV programs online from PBS, Discovery or BBC?

Here is an incomplete list of some video series I enjoy:

Veritasium Films by Derek Muller

Bill Hammack's The Engineer Guy videos. See my cameo in this one:

Henry Reich's Minute Physics

Vihart's enjoyable math videos

Nurd Rage's chemistry and physics demonstrations 

Periodic videos 

Symphony of Science 

Professor Dave at York is an organic chemist who gives us insight into the science of the everyday, including Coca Cola 

My co-host at PsiVid, Carin Bondar, produces videos on the nature of human nature

What are some of your favorites? Think about what you like most about them and share it with me tomorrow evening!
