Welcome to It’s Not Rocket Surgery

Welcome to the RMIT Media program’s Semester 2 2017 studio “It’s Not Rocket Surgery” supervised by Liam Ward. This studio has aimed to answer the question: “What are the challenges and creative possibilities in communicating complex ideas, scientific processes, or philosophical concepts to online video audiences?”

Throughout this semester, we have examined this emerging genre of short-form online video aimed at explaining complex ideas to audiences with ever-decreasing attention spans in a short amount of time and have endeavoured to create videos within this genre, applying our observations on what works and what doesn’t work. On this site you can find the videos we produced for Project Briefs 1, 3 and 4 as well as our weekly updates and some photos and videos of our work in progress.
