ISB sometimes gets requests from production crews who need to film in a lab setting. Our labs are so open and beautiful that producers get excited about shooting on site. We worked with crew that was shooting a commercial for a large brokerage firm that featured an actor playing a scientist. Four of our scientists got the opportunity to be extras for the shoot. They also served as consultants, teaching the actor how to pipette and how to handle a beaker. There was much more lighting and camera equipment than any of us expected, but it was a fun bit of chaos for half a day. To see some more photos, visit this page.
