UPDATE: Ockham Awards 2013
A quick update to mention that our skepticism advert won the Ockham Award for Best Scientific/Skeptical Video at the 2013 Ockhams, an award previously picked up by the brilliant Tim Minchin. We’re absolutely thrilled – not least because the award lights up purple!
Thanks to everyone who helped us create the film, and to The Skeptic magazine, too.
Skepticism: The New Miracle Life-Cure!
It’s done! Here’s the Skepticism Advert. It’s a silly, fun piece we made aiming to tackle the subject of scientific skepticism in an over-the-top, not-too-serious way. We hope you enjoy it.
Here are the brilliant people who made the Skepticism Advert:
Robert Sutcliffe: Director of photography
Markus Meedt: Assistant director and nervous German technician
Markus on IMDB
Nick Norton-Smith: Composer
Luke Daly: Sound recordist and smug man at party
Rebecca Hemmings: Housemate Charlie, and logo designer!
Thanks too to our party extras: Isabelle Sieb, Ian Holland, Paul Gregory and Lottie Elliot.
