The Lab Guy Check In #1: Call for submissions for the NOVA inspired Open Call – Life Stories

When Charles Darwin looked at life, he saw that all living things—from the tiniest ant to the largest whale, and even human beings—are related. In his view, everything alive today descended ultimately from one common ancestor, like relatives on a family tree.

Do you find this idea beautiful or disturbing? What do you see when you look at life?

We’d like to know.

This fall’s Open Call is a chance to share your vision with the world. We challenge you to make a three-minute video that offers a compelling perspective on the living world.

Do you think life is a battle for survival? A harmonious web of interconnections? A fleeting chance to realize your dreams?

Be creative in your thoughts. You may want to tackle something profound, something political, or just tell a story about your dog.

This Open Call is inspired by a series of NOVA films on Darwin and Evolution that will air this fall and winter on PBS, and your work may be presented, via broadcast and broadband, in conjunction with this event.
