Director Statement

The documentary filming process for the Yes! Science! series was a collaborative venture. Guests were given questions in advance, which they may change, remove, or add to them. Guests also collaborated on filming locations, camera angles, b-roll suggestions, etc. Before their profile video was released, guests approved the video, and they may change anything, including reshooting their interview. This film is a compilation of two years of work and includes answers to questions that weren't released in a brand new documentary special.

For our third season, we’ve shifted from documentary style to a live studio audience talk show hosted by Pallas the Librarian. In our monthly show, Pallas interviews people in various STEM-related careers about their work, perform fun science experiments, lead panel discussions, and discuss books that have inspired our guests.
