During the write-up of my PhD, I was thinking about how many (or few!) people would actually end up reading it. In addition to publishing the contents in peer-reviewed journals, I wanted a way to make all that work accessible to more people. I was tempted to create a graphic novel version, but that would still require people to sit down and read from cover to cover. So instead, I made a 3 minute stop motion animation – something I’d never done before but greatly enjoyed.
