We recently made a video with JoVE (Journal of Visualized Experiments). It was really fun! You can find the movie and paper here.
It took me quite some time to prepare the ‘movie-script’ (really different than writing a normal publication), but it does count as a real publication on pubmed!
Arjan and Silvia organized the ‘show’ on the filming day (impressively organized) and all of us had to say a few words. I was reminded how terrible I am in front of a camera! It was much more comfortable to hold the Director Clapper (La Claqueta in spanish) ;).
I think the JoVE concept is valuable – to share methodology and eliminate as many hurdles as possible as a joint scientific community.
