Video oral history workshop

Video oral history workshop

In response to growing demand, this one-day course will give an introduction to the principles and techniques of recording, editing and distributing oral history on video. No previous video experience is required.

The workshop will take participants in a simple way through the various stages of video production – plan/shoot/edit/share. It will examine the advantages and disadvantages of video over audio recordings, give practical advice on recording techniques (including framing, lighting, background and clothing), offer guidance on suitable equipment, give an introduction to digital video editing software, show examples of ways in which video interviews can be shared with others and clarify legal and ethical issues and archiving. The day will offer many opportunities for discussion and hands-on work.

We highly recommend that you undertake the Introduction to Oral History workshop before participating in the Video Oral History workshop. The next Introduction to Oral History workshop will be on 17 April.
