Animations: Gee Mmm Oh!

UPDATE:  Gee Mmm Oh has been selected to be part of Science Studio’s Best Science Multimedia on the Web for 2012.

Our latest series of animations tackles the science and debate around genetic modification, especially in crops and food.

It’s a light-hearted look at possibilities of this technology which respects the science while still remaining a little skeptical about of the promised outcomes and big business ethics. The narration uses the amusing and repetitive rhyming scheme of anapestic tetrameter (e.g. The Night Before Christmas and The Hat in the Cat).

This series will contribute to the library of TechNyou resources and has been funded by the Australian Government Department of Industry, Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education (DIISRTE).

  1. I was so intimidated by the phrase “repetitive rhyming scheme of anapestic tetrameter” that I hardly noticed the grossly disfigured title “The Hat in the Cat” –😉 Nice animations. Next challenge is to tell an equivalent story using less than 50 one syllable words.
