Produced and written by Dr. Lindsey K. Alberston of Montana State University and directed and edited by Greg Cairns and Chet Stefan of Cairns Film. In partnership with the National Science Foundation, Montana State University, San Francisco State University, and the Stroud Water Research Center.

Dr. Albertson often uses this film in presentations on her research. She has two typical audiences; grade school students, and professional researchers at conferences. We thoroughly enjoyed working with macro photography on this project. Science outreach brings together elements of science video production, outdoor video production, and nature video production to create new and unique perspectives.

“Greg and his team at Cairns Film are insightful, organized, and professional. Designing projects with them was fun, and the outcome of my final film was better than I hoped for. I highly recommend him!

“Greg does great work! I worked with Greg on an educational science outreach production. Not only does the production look great, but in my experience he does just as good of a job of understanding his clients needs and message. The approach that Greg takes is one that is truly important when communicating science (along with the many other important topics covered with his work) to a broad audience.”
