Another of this year’s excellent crop of group projects was the Science Network, a parody of the Social Network (a recent movie about Facebook).
Ben, Polly and Katya took the trailer and turned it into the invention of PubMed, a biomedical paper database which helped to revolutionise online journal searching and linking. There were strong philosophical and rational ideas underpinning the project, but it was also a right laugh.
Here’s the parody; if you haven’t seen the Social Network, or want to brush up on the trailer, check it out on youtube here.
And the obligatory gag reel. Note: I’m the guy burning stuff and getting intimate with coursemate Polly in the toilet… it was a little awkward! Great fun though, I think they did a very good job considering they started with very little film making experience at all!
