BrainCraft Studios is a learning media company producing science-based content to educate, inspire & entertain.

We empower audiences with evidence-based information they can use to enrich their everyday lives – to boost well-being, to strengthen relationships, to better communicate and increase productivity.  

BrainCraft is an indie operation that has educated millions worldwide. We’re rigorously fact-checked and advocates of making research accessible.


As well as an extensive catalogue of videos and articles, BrainCraft ran as a series with PBS for four seasons and we’ve produced  documentary content for PBS, Screen Australia and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. 


Vanessa Hill is an award-winning science educator, host and producer​. She began her career in the classroom, working for Australia’s federal science agency to teach underserved communities in remote parts of Australia. After spending six years with the federal government, Vanessa turned to YouTube to fill a gap in the science curriculum: communicating the incredible world of brain science. 


After early success on YouTube, PBS commissioned ongoing seasons of BrainCraft which saw Vanessa relocate to New York City. Vanessa has also hosted and produced series for ABC, AAAS and CSIRO, some of the most trusted brands in science and education. 


Vanessa holds a Bachelor of Science (Psychology) from the University of New South Wales and a Masters of Science Communication from Australian National University.
