In this article, we present three challenges to the emerging Open Science(OS) movement: the challenge of communication, collaboration andcultivation of scientific research. We argue that to address thesechallenges OS needs to include other forms of data than what can becaptured in a text and extend into a fully-fledged Open Media movementengaging with new media and non-traditional formats of sciencecommunication. We discuss two cases where experiments with openmedia have driven new collaborations between scientists anddocumentarists. We use the cases to illustrate different advantages ofusing open media to face the challenges of OS.
