Northwest Invention Center Filmmaking

The Northwest Invention Center is now collaborating with a team of scientists-turned-filmmakers to provide film/video production services for researchers, museums, and other organizations.


Film and video can be an invaluable tool for instruction, complement and enrich curricula, and help revitalize public relations or publicity campaigns. This tool can help you reach out to new audiences with your exhibits, educational outreach, and science communication efforts.


We will work with you to develop innovative multimedia products that meet your demands and fit your budget. Pricing is flexible, with productions ranging from ultra-low-budget to broadcast quality. Production experience includes film, video (standard and Hi-Def), and computer graphics/animation. Experienced and certified in terrestrial and aquatic filmmaking, we can go anywhere a project may lead.


Our filmmakers are all former scientists who were not satisfied with the current state of science communication and have set out to bring creative new approaches to science filmmaking. Coming from diverse scientific backgrounds they have produced films on a wide variety of scientific subjects and are eager to find innovative solutions to meet your scientific and creative needs.

Workshops in Europe

Our workshops in Europe in 2015 start May 1 and run through mid-June. If you would like to have a workshop at your school or science center, give me a shout.

Innovative Teaching and Learning

We launched a Facebook page to encourage the exchange of ideas on Innovative Teaching and Learning. 855894851101243/ Research and experience consistently show that learners stay engaged, exhibit more curiosity, and learn more effectively when they are addressing challenges that they meet with kinetic action. In spite of what we believe to be overwhelming evidence of the success of this 21st century approach to learning, it is not widely followed.

New Blog

As a museum director and scientist I have enjoyed adventures around the world. Now, I'm recounting them in short stories on a new blog: Whisper Dish Adventures. http://whisperdishadventures.
