Science Friction: A New Documentary

$335 of $163,000 goal

Raised by 5 people in 11 months
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. The film is intended for theatrical release. The networks are not going to like us very much, so we are crowdfunding the production, right here on this page. The people want honest science reporting!

Science Friction is directed by Emery Emery (The Aristocrats ) and written and presented by Brian Dunning (Principles of Curiosity ).

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

Skeptoid Media has been producing documentary films, web video series, and podcasts since 2006. Our award-winning film Principles of Curiosity was successfully crowdfunded and completed in 2017 and you can watch it right here to get an idea of our high production standards.

Hey everyone. I just want to be clear & upfront about how we're doing this, as we have a main fundraising page at sciencefriction.tv. The goal amount on this GoFundMe page is set to whatever amount we have not yet collected directly, and I will be reducing this amount each week as we near the target. So fear not, funds collected on either page are credited equally, and that's why the target amount shown may differ on the two pages.
