Finally, a documentary about scientists who get misrepresented by the media.
Those TV documentaries you see, and the science experts they feature? Did you know that producers often edit them out of context, and twist their words, to make it seem like they promoted some pop sensationalism instead of the real facts?

Science Friction is going to expose these faux documentaries by name, and will give the scientists a chance to clear the record. This is a full-length theatrical film. The production is being crowdfunded right here on this page.

The many scientists and other experts we're interviewing include:

Richard DawkinsMichael MannSteven NovellaJames RandiDavid S. AndersonBrian BrushwoodJonathan DavisKen FederMichael FitzpatrickBritt HermesTerry HughesRay HymanJanine KrippnerJake LowensternScott MardisRiko MuranakaMartina Newell-McGloughlinJoe NickellBen RadfordJoseph SchwarczSimon SinghAlison Van EenennaamMathew Wedel

And many others with jaw-dropping stories of misrepresentation.

Skeptoid Media is a 501(c)(3) educational nonprofit, so all crowdfunding donations are fully tax deductible for U.S. taxpayers.

Call for scientists
We have many interviews already scheduled and are actively looking for more stories. If you are a scientist who was duped, warped, taken out of context, or otherwise screwed by the production, contact our producer James H. Marsden.

Science Friction is directed by Emery Emery (The Aristocrats, Gambler's Ballad).
