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 is wonderful to work with and has helped me with a number of projects. He is always proactive in working towards a finished product and brings a thoughtful and creative approach to the table. I can not recommend Cairns Film enough.“
