I have exciting news for student filmmakers and journalists interested in participating in a high profile project by LabTV with the support of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Google. LabTV’s mission is to use video profiles to attract young people, especially women and minorities, to the field of biomedical research.

LabTV video profiles of university biomedical lab researchers are being made by student filmmakers and journalists on the same campus as the labs. To lead this effort, LabTV has brought in Emmy award winning filmmaker David Hoffman, with over 50 years of experience and more than 150 PBS specials to his credit. David has created video profile templates with researchers at UC Berkeley and UCSF for students to watch. These templates can be viewed at: http://lab-tv.org/filmmakers/video-profile-templates/.

David will be available to work directly with participating student filmmakers and journalists. Learn more about David at www.whoisDavidHoffman.com.

We are pleased that our university was selected to participate. We are seeking student filmmakers and journalists to create video profiles. The project will only take about a week’s worth of work, which can be spread out over the course of one to two months. This is an opportunity to build an impressive sample reel and have your work showcased as part of a global project that will generate considerable buzz. Additionally, you will have access to LabTV resources and mentoring from David Hoffman. Top submitted videos will be included in a tentative special event with the Tribeca Film Festival around LabTV’s launch in April and LabTV is hosting a competition, where David’s team will be selecting the best videos with prizes totaling $10,000.

We recommend that students contact David Hoffman as soon as possible, as spaces are limited and we are moving forward quickly. Interested students should complete a short application at: http://lab-tv.org/filmmakers/filmmaker-application. You can also email David Hoffman at David@LabTV.com if you have any questions about the project.
