What is your interest at the intersection of sciences and film?

I report exclusively on climate change, the topic in one way or another of these four videos. My reporting is always informed by scientific research on the topic. Often my stories are about the research itself, as in the case of Rising Vines and Tropical Birds. I like reporting on the process of science, as I believe much journalism inadvertently misleads the public into believing that science is a compendium of discoveries rather than a method of discovering truth. The other two videos here aren’t specifically about a research program; rather, they represent my own efforts to explore a phenomenon (given what researchers know about the situation).
