WELCOME paticipants attending the World Congress of Science and Factual Producers to this website. It is a home base for media projects that will
explore human hands, how they work and what they can do. This is a vast subject and the marketplace is equally complex. As a result I have been developing specific approaches but my ideas are very fluid.
For those interested in a science-based story there is Agents of the Brain, a one-hour documentary that will show, over the span of a human lifetime, the powerful connection existing between hand and brain.
For the digital universe there is Maker Moments, a blog-based series of short videos that are mini-profiles of tinkerers, crafters, trades peoples, artists and inventors.
The Makers is a TV series that is very similar to Maker Moments. In this case a host will be following several makers though the creative process and at times trying their own hand at it. It is not a how-to. It is more of a 'Why are you passionate about what you do?' and 'What drives you?'.
On the Video page there are some other demos that give a broader picture of what I would want to do. During the Congress I will be looking for partners, broadcaters and aggregators to bring this project to the next stage. Friendly advice is most welcomed. Reading my latest blog entry will show you what has inspired me;
It's an Exciting Time to Tell Maker Stories.
