RE: the best dinosaur documentary possible
I suppose I am jumping the gun and I am afraid of jinxing it, but Bob
and I have been alarmed at the state of science education that we see
and we have been highly motivated to do something about it.
We have owned dinosaurchannel.tv for several years and we are in the
final stages working in an entrepreneurial incubator to create a
television website accessible by a broad range of devices.
Our aim is not to spend all the money on a few seconds of animation,
which only look cool ( when they actually look cool,) but to take the
voracious desires of young children for dinosaur material, and the
indulgence of their parents and cultivate an understanding of what
science is, and does, and how cool the world is, and how
understanding science relates it to their lives.
We will use dinosaurs as a way to reach them about math and art as well.
Our intention is to combat fantastical thinking by presenting real
science to children (and their parents) in easily digestible bites on
a daily/weekly basis and hopefully, create a love of science that
endures beyond a fascination with dinosaurs.
I know, no biggie.
As always, there are 2 ways to fund it, the dark side of the force
and the Jedi way. The dark side has a lot more money but potentially
wants the right to interfere with our message.
(It seems, these days in America, presenting science is political....)
But, if you would care to help me put some numbers together, I would
How much would you charge to allow filming of you on a topic you love
for 7-10 minutes?
How much does your museum charge to film a tour?
Is Skype possible from your dig location? How much of a financial
offset of your field expenses would be reasonable to ask for Skype
We really can't say more until the funding is in place and because
the 1st 25 episodes are proprietary, but anything you would like to
say to us you can email to us directly.
Thanks for your help.
