NOAA: Science at Work

Project Overview

Since 2019, Rock Creek Productions has been working with NOAA’s Pacific Marine Environmental Lab located in Seattle, WA to produce a series of videos highlighting their important scientific research projects. Titled “Science at Work,” this series has covered everything from using acoustics and eDNA to study blue whales to using autonomous ocean gliders to collect ocean currents data in the Solomon Sea to predict El Niño weather patterns.

The Challenge

As a DC video production company, Rock Creek’s primary challenge was to use its video branding services to produce interesting and engaging videos highlighting the work that PMEL does and how it benefits the U.S. economy and our wider understanding of the world.

The Solution

Tasked with producing up to four videos per year, Rock Creek Productions streamlined its video production process and limited travel to just one trip to PMEL’s headquarters each year with the goal of filming for several different projects at once. Featuring footage captured in the field by NOAA scientists across the globe and our own in-house motion graphics to accurately represent complicated scientific concepts for a broad audience, Rock Creek’s work for PMEL has garnered numerous awards and national recognition including NOAA’s annual Arctic Report Card being featured on the front page of the New York Times.
