PROJECTS


GENERAL ELECTRIC

With the advertising agency BBDO, we assisted in the creation of ads for the General Electric Company's Ecomagination advertising campaign.



IMAGINE SCIENCE FILM FESTIVAL

We sponsored an award for New York City public school students at the Imagine Science Film Festival in New York City, October 15-23, 2009.



AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF PHYSICS

We are giving advice to Discoveries and Breakthroughs in Science, which produces short video segments on science news stories.

FLATLAND THE MOVIE

We are assisting the makers of Flatland the Movie, starring Martin Sheen, Michael York, and Kristen Bell.


PUBLIC BROADCASTING SERVICE (PBS)

We have been contacted by PBS to help with the science series Wired Science.

RAYTHEON

On April 26, 2006, we were asked to help launch the "Hippest Homework Happening" for MathMovesU.com. Hollywood Math and Science Film Consulting's Professor Jonathan Farley and Professor Sarah Greenwald spoke at the event. The only other speakers were U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy, the late U.S. Congresswoman Jo Ann Davis, Raytheon Senior Vice President for Strategy Bill Lynn, and Olympic gold medalist Apolo Ohno. The event took place outside the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C.

MEDIUM

Medium

We have been consultants for the hit television crime drama Medium on NBC.


STANFORD UNIVERSITY

We organized a symposium on women, mathematics and film for Stanford University's Institute for Research on Women and Gender (now the Clayman Institute). This symposium featured actress Danica McKellar (a star of the TV series The Wonder Years and The West Wing, and author of the acclaimed book Math Doesn't Suck), who graduated summa cum laude with a degree in mathematics from the University of California at Los Angeles, and culminated in a screening and discussion of the movie Proof.

NUMB3RS

Medium


We have been consultants for the hit television crime drama Numb3rs on CBS. For instance, on January 20, 2005 and shortly thereafter, we suggested that Numb3rs work with the National Council for Teachers of Mathematics to create homework assignments related to the mathematical and scientific topics discussed in each episode. Such a program was created in late September 2005.

PRIMER

The movie Primer won the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival in 2004. At the request of Primer's public relations firm, Hollywood Math and Science Film Consulting representative Dr. Anthony Harkin of Harvard University attended the Boston premiere of Primer, to lead an audience discussion afterwards about the science in the film.

The event took place at The Kendall Square Cinema in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
