Photography by ScienceMedia – IODP Expedition 358 (Japan, 2019)
We help you share the process and progress of your research and technological projects. We help document your field work, laboratory work, expeditions, and create moving and still imagery that can be used on social media and high profile science websites, as well as for traditional press outlets. We help you design and run effective social media campaigns to engage with your audience.
Himalayan Water Towers
A team of Utrecht University climate researchers study and model changing hydrology cycles in the Himalayas. Since we could not join them during their fieldwork, this short documentary was composed by using (scripted) footage shot by the science party.
Experimenting with virtual reality in Dutch classrooms. This pilot episode for NTR SchoolTV on ocean currents and physics by Prof. Appy Sluijs (Utrecht University) explores VR-video as an engaging tool for educational videos for high school students.
Thinking Like a Bird
In this award winning documentary, we follow Prof. Theunis Piersma (Royal NIOZ) as he researches the worldwide impact of climate change on migratory birds. The core of his research is the global role of intertidal mud flats in the lifecycle of waders.
Winner “Green Heron” 2019 for best film on ecological & sustainable development.
International Ocean Discovery Program
ScienceMedia has collaborated with IODP for over a decade to produce expedition-specific and educational videos. The footage we gather during several IODP expeditions has served many purposes and we continue to build on the outreach library for future projects.
Exploring the Temperature Limit
A group of Earth scientists set out on the DV Chikyu to determine the temperature limit of microbial life beneath the ocean floor. In this award winning ‘portrait style’ documentary, the scientists share their insights, methods, and curiosity to address this fundamental question about limits of microbial life on Earth.
Winner: “Silver Heron” 2017 for best science documentary.
AGU Cinema Top 10 selection 2017
Exploring the Fault Trace (Episode 1 to 4)
We were on board DV Chikyu to document the instalment of one of the hi-tech earthquake observatories through the Nankai Trough, the boundary between the Pacific and Eurasian plates offshore Japan. We produced and published a series of 4 short videos directly from the drillship along the way.

A Guide to Smear Slides
This short video takes you through the step-by-step process of preparing a smear slide to determine the composition of deep-sea sediments. This educational video features playful animations for context and a light atmosphere.
Today more than ever you are asked to connect with those who are interested in your research, be it the general audience, funding agencies, or policy makers. We help you develop practical communication strategies and their step-by-step implementation. We create social media tools to communicate your science story to multiple audiences on multiple platforms and to help build a growing fan base, draw attention to your project, and create new networking opportunities.
Tipping Point Ahead
We developed an interactive website for Dutch high school students and their teachers using short videos, social media, blogs, and teaching modules to offer unique insight into the research efforts of young climate scientists. Each young researcher shares their expertise on tipping points in the climate system: How hot will the Earth’s climate be in a hundred years? Where will it be the warmest? Will temperatures rise steadily or can we expect sudden shifts? In other words, which tipping points characterize the climate system?
Tipping Point Ahead – Teaser
Episode 9: How do you create a climate model?
Episode 2: Is the Greenland ice sheet melting?
Explaining the mechanisms behind the natural processes you study, or the way your research works sometimes means that you have to visualise abstract concepts that cannot be easily captured on camera. We help you accomplish this by means of animations that are accurate, visually attractive, and instructional.
The Ocean Observatories Initiative
The Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) in the United States is a major research facility operated as a community resource. It provides continuous observations and data spanning the seafloor, the overlying ocean, and the atmosphere. In this short promotional video, animations were designed to connect locations, processes, and methods into a refreshing corporate identity for OOI.
A compact introduction to the MOSAIC project. We made a more appealing visual presentation of the project’s work with available imagery and newly animated graphics.
Where live footage is neither available nor effective in communicating your message, we turn to animation. The GGHDC uses an advanced geo-computing framework to link environmental datasets to global healthcare. globalgeohealthdatacenter.com
Science is a human endeavour, but this facet of the scientific process often goes untold.
The best way for people to experience the same passion as you have for your research is to experience it for themselves. Even though the end result is rational, objective, and factual, the process of science is filled with emotions. We help create live events where you can inspire your audience by sharing the highs and lows of scientific exploration in a way that is emotive, interactive, visual, and inspiring.

In Search of Earth’s Secrets
This publicly accessible multi-screen & media roadshow brings cutting-edge IODP science stories to rural and urban communities in the USA. It is a hands-on experience in which participants learn about science themes researched by the IODP, including earthquakes, volcanoes, climate change, and the extinction of the dinosaurs. The seven-minute multiscreen video tells about the discoveries IODP has made over the last 50 years.
Photography by ScienceMedia- Filming for Tipping Point Ahead (Netherlands, 2020)
After many years of directing corporate films, my fascination for capturing scientific exploration took shape in our new company. Helping scientists to get their stories across is extremely rewarding. The personal insights gained on ‘how science works’ remains a source of inspiration.
I’m looking to focus my talents and knowledge in audiovisual-media on stories that matter. I want to reach people with new ideas and translate them into inspiring films, animations, or multimedia experiences for them to enjoy and learn from.
I just love to organise, most of all things that matter, matter to the world and to future generations. Having many years of experience as a producer, a healthy curiosity and a passion for science, there is no mountain too high or ocean too deep.
