The Linnean Society’s videos aim to tell a story that has science and facts about the natural world subtly embedded within a story, either revolving around an object or person from the history of the field.

This workshop will not involve using video equipment but rather focus on soft-skills like story identification, story-boarding and script-writing.

The workshop will be led by the Society's Digital Content Producer, Ross Ziegelmeier, who will explain his workflow and give his top tips on producing video content.
