Sure thing Natasha – all you have to do is vote for me so that I win and have the funds to make the whole film! 🙂
Making the trailer was a lot of fun. The aim ultimately will be to make a longer film in which lots of different scientists talk about why they became a scientist. I have started to draw up a list of people I would like to talk to – this includes men and women working at all levels of science, from junior scientists who are still studying for their PhD all the way up to very experienced people. I even know one Nobel Prize winner who I think is likely to agree to be interviewed (though I haven’t asked him yet so forgive me for not revealing his name).
I hope that, in what they say, these people will explain why they like science so much. I expect very few of them, if any, to claim that they are a genius…! I hope the film would make some people think “Hey – I could do this too !”
