WGBH Open Call: "Life Stories" Invitation
- WGBH The Lab is proud to announce this fall's Open Call: "Life Stories"
Inspired by Nova's spotlight programming on Darwin and evolution, this Open Call is a marriage of science and creativity. The Lab challenges the general public, independent media makers, emerging talent, and the like to consider their own compelling perspectives or "Life Stories", craft unique videos, and share their vision with the world.
When Charles Darwin looked at life, he saw that all living thingsfrom the tiniest ant to the largest whale, and even human beingsare related. In his view, everything alive today descended ultimately from one common ancestor, like relatives on a family tree.
Do you find this idea beautiful or disturbing? What do you see when you look at life?
We'd like to know.
This is a chance to share your vision with the world. We challenge you to make a three-minute video that offers a compelling perspective on all things living.
Feel free to explore new genres, original concepts, alternative points of view, visually driven story lines, and other less conventional story forms.
Be funny, provocative, and educational. Most important, be creative and have fun!
