Episode 6:

Lights, Camera, Adaptation! Using visuals to tell your adaptation story!

Guest: Adam Spencer

Broadcast August 21, 2016

Episode 6: Adam Spencer with Filmmakers for Conservation. Adam and Doug discuss how you can use visuals to tell your adaptation story. Adam has just started turning his environmental film making skills toward adaptation. We discuss using film, TV, and even graphic novel comics as mediums to discuss climate change adaptation. We also get into a spirited discussion on how conservation funding undervalues communication and what steps we might take to bring more creative approaches to science communication.  As a bonus, Adam, an environmental film/documentary aficionado shares with us his all time favorite environmental films.

We are pleased to announce the first recipient of the 2016 Filmmaker-In-Residence award – Kristen Weiss!  Kristen’s project A Series of Solutions will include four films each featuring an aspect of ocean health and sustainability related to the research that the Center for Ocean Solutions is leading. The Center for Ocean Solutions is a partnership of Stanford University (through the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment and Hopkins Marine Station), the Monterey Bay Aquarium, and the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute.

The 4 films will cover the following topics: 1) Protecting California’s abalone from ocean acidification and oxygen shortages, 2) Improving ocean monitoring and protection through the Marine Biodiversity Observing Network, 3) Making coastlines resilient to sea level rise by protecting natural assets, focusing on protection of dunes and wetlands, which improves ocean health as well as protecting coastal human communities and 4) Improving sustainability in small-scale fisheries, focusing on how to sustain both marine resources and human livelihoods in these fisheries which are so important globally. Learn more about Kristen and her project HERE.
