DescriptionFour-day course: Session 1: Tuesday, January 15, 2013 from 2 PM to 4 PM - 2 hr Lecture Session 2: Wednesday, January 16, 2013 from 2 PM to 4 PM - 2 hr Workshop Session 3: Wednesday, January 23, 2013, 2 PM to 4 PM - 2 hr Workshop Computer lab sessions for camera troubleshooting and student editing work on the computers will be provided depending on computer lab availability. These dates and times to be announced. Session 4: Sunday, January 27, 2013, 2 PM to 4 PM - Presentation during the WEP Film Fest *Mandatory attendance at the 4 sessions This 4-day course will demonstrate how to effectively communicate science through film. Students will learn how to convey complicated scientific or technological research in a concise and engaging way. Students will divide into groups and work together to create a one-minute digital short for their lab or scientific research. Basic narrative, filming and editing techniques will be covered. *NOTE: This academic course might be subject to time modifications*

Michael L. Berumen
Mike received a Zoology degree from the University of Arkansas in 2001. He then attended James Cook University in Australia to pursue graduate studies in coral reef ecology, specializing in life history and ecology of butterflyfishes. He was awarded the PhD in 2007. Mike accepted a postdoctoral fellowship at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, where he focused on larval connectivity in coral reef fishes. During his time in Woods Hole, Mike began working in the Red Sea in 2008 in partnership with a new university in Saudi Arabia - the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST). Mike joined KAUST in July 2009 as a founding faculty member in the Red Sea Research Center. Mike has authored more than 250 peer-reviewed articles and 8 book chapters, and he has co-edited two books. His research focuses on advancing general understanding of Red Sea coral reefs and more broadly making contributions to movement ecology, which is a critical aspect of developing conservation plans in the marine environment. He is particularly interested in connectivity questions ranging from larval dispersal to large distance migrations of adult fishes.
