      I hope so since my aim would be to make science less of a mystery to people. I think a lot of people are put off the idea of studying science because they assume it’s too hard for them. Or they think that to be a scientist, you have to be some kind of genius.

      But that’s not true. So I would hope that using films to show what science is really like and, perhaps more importantly, what scientists are like, it might inspire more people to study the subject. Some of them might even go on to make great discoveries.

      What do you think?
