Recently, HHMI announced that the film initiative will be led by Michael Rosenblad, a documentary producer and former president of National Geographic Television. In the HHMI news article, he shares his vision for the project:
“Good science films capture the passion of discovery,” said Rosenfeld. “At their best, they give viewers a vicarious sense of what it is like to be a scientist and to be on an adventure. Through film we can help people imagine — in a vivid way – what it would be like to make a discovery themselves.”
Having a top film-maker work with a scientific institute should lead to interesting films, and I can’t wait to watch them.
