You bring the science. We'll bring the strategy.

Impact Media Lab is a full-service creative studio, meaning our team can handle everything from grant writing to media production to distribution. Current media campaigns include Shiny applications, documentary films, websites, and more.






Telling your story often begins with a website. One that is optimized across platforms, rich with media, and reflective of your personality, productivity, and unqiue vision for your science.

Documentary films

Video offers a perfect medium to engage your audience on an emotional level. We specialize in films that tell the stories behind the data points--stories about people with passion, wildlife in jeopardy, adventure, fear, and hope.

Grant consulting

In this tough fiscal climate, selling your story is critical to securing funding for your work. We can help you find the most compelling aspects of your work and better highlight those aspects in your grant proposals.

  • Video & graphic supplements

Our funding takes two forms:


I have money!

I have funding and would like to hire Impact Media Lab to develop an outreach campaign:

You already have funding, wonderful! In this model, we brainstorm a media campaign together, based on your budget, your outreach goals, and the type of work that you do. We could create a documentary, an interactive web application, a new website for the project or your lab group. There is no limit to what we can build together.

I will have money!

I am applying for a grant and would like Impact Media Lab to develop my Broader Impacts section:

You're applying for a grant, great! Partnering with Impact Media Lab makes your grant proposals more competitive (we have a strong record of securing National Science Foundation funding). In this model, we collaborate to craft an exciting outreach campaign. We write the Broader Impacts section for you and add our production costs to the project budget.
